By Katherine Locke

I think it’s important that those of you who are interested in writing main characters who experience a marginalization outside your own take a peek at this article by @bibliogato. Trigger warning for extensive discussion of the Holocaust including quotes about dashing Nazi uniforms.

There are a lot of “don’ts” in here, some minor, some thematic. 

If I had the power, I would add an 11th commandment to the already existing 10: “You should never be a bystander”.

When we are no longer able to change a situation, we are challenged to change ourselves.
—  from Man’s Search for Meaning by Viktor E. Frankl, Holocaust survivor and psychiatrist
I believe in the sun even when it is not shining. I believe in love even when I cannot feel it. I believe in God even when He is silent.

We must remember that hate is never right and love is never wrong.
