No, not that valedictorian story. That’s a good story, and I cry every time I read it. This is another one.

I like science fiction, and I just listened to a good podcast on EscapePod. Valedictorian is about a girl in the future where 20% of the population is regularly culled to outside the firewall. She has 3 rules:

  1. She will always give her best
  2. She will not live in fear
  3. She will be herself

The story is a good one that asks what it means to be human. I found it more interesting than most.
