Blossoming on the young Rhine

As Enjolras speaks of his friends, she bows her head a little in solemn understanding, waiting until he finishes before she replies. 'Even though I've been fortunate -- more than fortunate -- I know what can happen to those who aren't. We have cousins and good friends whose lands were not free, not until relatively recently. And I know the lengths that they went to in order to fight for that freedom, for themselves and their people.'
That first Christmas after the Wall came down, with her extended family together again for the first time in more than sixty years...to think of it even now makes her quickly blink her eyes to clear them. She knows, better than most, how fragile one's existence can be.
'Would you tell me about them, your friends? Did you all come together for the cause, or had you known some of them before?'
