You must never give in to despair. Allow yourself to slip down that road and you surrender to your lowest instincts. In the darkest times, hope is something you give yourself. That is the meaning of inner strength.
Even though I was born blind, I’ve never had a problem seeing. I see with earthbending. It’s kind of like seeing with my feet. I can feel the vibrations in the earth, and I can see where everything is.
Dad, I know it’s hard for you to see me this way, but the obedient little helpless blind girl that you think I am just isn’t me. I love fighting. I love being an earthbender. And I’m really, really good at it.
