Actions of Change

This solitary action
The root and cause of change
This solitary action
Born of idealism, careless and free
A consequence whether by chance or fate
Announced grandly, not a moment late
This solitary action.

Belle--as discussed here--finally made it's way to a city near me.
At the end, I couldn't help but wonder, if the Admiral hadn't gotten a slave pregnant,
if the slave hadn't died, if Dido hadn't come to stay with the Lord Chief Justice...
Would he have ever thought twice about the value of the life of slaves?
See more info on the history of this story here. The painting above is of Dido and her cousin.
