“She understands what being a leader is about,” agreed Gollaon.  “Showing that you are willing to share danger with your people, being with them rather than hiding with luxuries.  It is good politics.”

“True, but I hope it is more than that.”

“I think it does, she is giving of her own life’s blood to heal some of the worst wounded,” said Gollaon.  “Like the Pelican, who gives its own blood for to feed its young.”

“I did not know that.”
