HOTR on Racial Duty

We did what we did so that [your daughter] and all her generation wouldn’t have to. If our fathers or our grandfathers had done their racial duty then you would not have been forced to do it. If you hadn’t done it at long last, then nothing would be left of a three thousand year-old civilization. Someday the son will rise and we won’t need the campfire anymore. Because of what you did in the darkness, Eva and her children will be able to live in the light.

--“The Hill of the Ravens”, pg 117
