overread

All we ask is to be allowed to remain the writers of our own story.  That story is ever changing.  Over the course of our lives, we may encounter unimaginable difficulties.  Our concerns and desires may shift.  But whatever happens, we want to retain the freedom to shape our lives in ways consistent with our character and loyalties.
