“I would give the greatest sunset in the world for one sight of New York’s skyline. Particularly when one can’t see the details. Just the shapes. The shapes and the thought that made them. The sky over New York and the will of man made visible.
…When I see the city from my window – no, I don’t feel how small I am – but I feel that if a war came to threaten this, I would throw myself into space, over the city, and protect these buildings with my body.” – Ayn Rand
War came to this city. And like a mother who protects her young, her family, I threw myself into space, over the city, to protect these buildings, this city, this nation from these savage invaders. And I have spent the last 12 years in this terrible battle fighting the enemy without and within.
