Melba realizes she in put on this Earth for a reason. "Now you see, that's the reason God spared your life. You're supposed to carry this banner for our people."
Melba is now starting to feel proud. "I felt proud and at the same time, proud that I live in a country that would go this far just to bring justice o a Little Rock girl like me, but sad that they had to go to such great lengths."
