LEIGH: This is not my life. This is not your life. I wish I could find the words to express the sorrow I feel for those of us who are made to suffer because of the immense hate that people continue to feel towards one another. There have been countless lives lost because we have forgotten to have the ability to care of one another. The American government feels justified in seeking retribution when I only feel frustration in the lack of humanity that exists in the world. Why can't we exist without your threat? We try to lead but you don't care about me. Nothing can divide us if we all love one another. Nothing can divide us. There can be no such thing as hate. We are all collateral damage. Throw down your guns. Raise up your hands. This is my life. This is your life. Are we human or are we machine? How could hate exist in such a beautiful world? Let us work together to preserve it. Let us all work together and we'll cure this. You destroy the earth, its life, and each other. You claim civilization but work under the name of destruction. You will be happy when? When there's nothing left in the world to calculate, classify, put a dollar sign on? How much is my life worth? They will forsake all life for what they believe in. They lose all life in the end. It will all break down in the end. It will all be gone in the end. Save yourself. Love. Respect.

TOM: You want security, well you can't take this one home. This is all that you see. But this one won't end until you see, this one won't end until you believe, because there will be no understanding until you see.

ROSS: Open your eyes, you'll see we had this coming. Open your eyes, you'll see it was only a matter of time. Please don't wave your flag in my face.
