I’ve always loved quotes. I have a folder at school full of them that I’ve used as writing prompts — daily journal entry topics — and as debate starters for persuasive writing and speaking. The posters around my room have inspirational quotes on them, too.
Today’s quotation made me laugh when I first saw it in my Google search, but once I looked into the TV movie from which it comes, I realized the story behind the movie script was a true one.
I haven’t seen Echoes in the Darkness yet, but I plan to look for it in the dollar bins…
“I don’t want to be killed! I just want to teach English!”
from the 1987 TV miniseries Echoes in the Darkness
