“What I need is the dandelion in the spring. The bright yellow that means rebirth instead of destruction. The promise that life can go on, no matter how bad our losses. That it can be good again.”
As I close the epilogue to the Mockingjay, I recall the very first introduction to the 3 finger salute, setting in motion a sequence of losses from Katniss’s choices and consequences, or the lack thereof in respect of the former – across the trilogy.
“It means thanks. It means admiration. It means saying goodbye to someone you love.”
