I remember my father handing it to me: the two stone tablets with the law clearly inscribed on them.
I remember the words he said to me: “Keep these always and your people will follow you.”
The thing was: I didn’t believe in most of them and I didn’t want the people to follow me. I wanted the people to think for themselves and to challenge the totalitarian society that had suppressed us for so long.
My father’s first mistake was that he put a woman in charge.
I wasn’t going to keep quiet after all that had happened and I wasn’t going to simply accept the position I was supposed to just agree to.
That wasn’t my style; I had my own and I intended to show it.
