  • Sofia:
    Sat in that jail, I sat in that jail till near about done rot to death. I know what it's like who wanna go somewhere and can't. I know what it's like who wanna sing... and have 'em beat outta ya. I wanna thank you, Miss Celie, for everything you've done for me. I remember that day in the store with Miss Millie - I'm feelin' real down, I'm feelin' mighty bad. And when I see you - I know that there is a God. I know that there is a God.
