Every battle against heresy wants only this: to keep the leper as [s]he is

The Pennacesse Leper Colony for Women, Cape Cod: 1922:

For us I say so often. For us we say. For us! We are 
Human and not individual, we hold everything in common. 
We are individual, you could pick us out in a crowd. 
You did. This island is not our prison. We are not kept 
In; not even by our skin. 

Norman Dubie.
