"People take love for granted. When me and Hertha first come to England, we didn't know nobody, we didn't have nothing, but we have friendship. We used to say, we are like Ruth and Naomi from the Bible. Where you go I will go and where you stay I will stay. Your country will be my country, and your god will be my god."

This is from the movie Oh Happy Day. It's right after Hertha dies and Rosie is talking to the rest of the family. What she said really spoke to me, in and out of context, and I just wanted to share it with everyone.
