"For this is God‘s great plan, that people rise up beyond their personal hatreds, here, right now, in this new land where so many different people with so many different bloods have come to join together and that we recognize we are all the children of God!

"Each of us is born with a box of matches inside us but we can't strike them all by ourselves; we need oxygen and a candle to help. In this case, the oxygen for example, would come from the breath of the person you love; the candle would be any kind of food, music, caress, word, or sound that engenders the explosion that lights one of the matches.

This was a great story! I loved hearing about the Haitian immigrant experience as well as how they try to assimilate to American culture. I especially enjoyed the main character. This is a must try!

The first queer Latina superhero written by Gabby Rivera. This has many pros and cons but it is still a fun read. This comic contains the first 6 issues.
