I've heard it said
That people come into our lives for a reason
Bringing something we must learn
And we are led
To those who help us most to grow
If we let them
And we help them in return
...It well may be
That we will never meet again
In this lifetime
So let me say before we part
So much of me
Is made of what I learned from you
You'll be with me
Like a handprint on my heart
And now whatever way our stories end
I know you have re-written mine
By being my friend... "
-For Good from the Broadway musical, Wicked.
Remember when angry Zuko "saved" Katara from the pirates? Remember when compassionate and understanding Katara wanted to heal confused Zuko because she thought it was important? Remember when hurt Katara threatened to kill Zuko for betraying her? ...Remember when she forgave him?
In all of these scenarios, both Zuko and Katara were different and changing people. They're two of the most dynamic characters in the show. But do you think they could have been who they were in the end without each other?
Happy Zutara week
