the Secretary’s advice

“For goodness sakes, this is the 21st century. We’ve got to get over what happened 50, 100, 200 years ago and let’s make money for everybody. That’s the best way to try to create some new energy and some new growth in Africa.”

-Hillary Clinton, June 2010

We are all grown-ups here. Those teenage years
are rough, for sure (we too have had Mongols)-
but one cannot afford to dwell. Take, charge
up debt, invest in your own brand! Go sell
yourself! Prospective bosses will not care
for slaves to trauma. Market, then allow
yourself the luxury of melancholy.
You wanna remember or be happy?
