Her words bridge gaps and mend fissures that are formed from language barriers and cultural animosities. She encourages others to find their courage to be loyal to the things that matter; those people and ideas that are closest to them. Those things of which their connections to whom have no ounce of corruption, or folly. The Butterflies may have lost their wings, but never did they lose their courage. A person must find where their loyalties lie only when they discern who they are; only then can they perceive what is most important to them.
