but I couldn't find a good picture from The Best One)
Will you join in our crusade? Who will be strong and stand with me?
Beyond the barricade is there a world you long to see?
Then join in the fight that will give you the right to be free!
Do you hear the people sing, singing the song of angry men?
It is the music of a people who will not be slaves again!
When the beating of your heart echoes the beating of the drums
There is a life about to start when tomorrow comes!
~Courfeyrac and Enjolras, Les Miserables: The Musical That Swept The World, In Concert (1995)
And yes, I'm still just the least tiniest bit obsessed... cough, cough. A long and rapturous post will be forthcoming next week. It is not at all cheating to post song lyrics for Quote of the Week--besides, it's my Quote of the Week. Might I just say that if you have not heard this amazing song, let me beg you to take two minutes of your life and watch this.
Also, the two finalists have been determined! Congratulations to Hayden and Alexandra, and to everyone else who participated. Please vote in the poll at the top of my sidebar---it closes at noon EST on Saturday the 28th, and then I shall announce the winner (though you'll all be able to see for yourselves by then).
