I'm shy. Time has changed me, and wore me down. My body is small, but my heart is large, i want to do good.

Trytobepretty1's Favorite Personal Quote:

First they came for the communists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a communist.

Then they came for the trade unionists,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist.

Then they came for the Jews,
and I didn't speak out because I wasn't a Jew.

Then they came for me
and there was no one left to speak out for me.
