Before You Say Anything

Imagine no one loves you and you have to leave home with nothing. (Shoes? Clothes? Passport? Mooncup?) 

Where would you go? Would you feel free? Are you free if your all ‘choices’ hurt? Are you free to hurt others if it stops them hurting you? Will the police believe you, or will they ask, ‘How did you know they would hurt you?’ Or is it naïve to believe they’d ask?  

Before You Say Anything asks how everyone can be safe at the same time.
