I'm doing everything I can. I'm getting my friends to do everything they can. It's still not enough. So I'm saving money and learning foreign languages to move out of this country. It's part of a ten year plan and it'll be a long time until it's realized. Every day I'm closer to my goal than the day before. After two years of work, I'm well ahead of schedule, and I can't wait to leave this sinking ship.
You might still be pushed around by these bullies a decade from now. I won't be.
