100 Days of Mockingjay - Angie's THG Story

Week 1 of our "100 Days of Mockingjay" celebration is all about Your THG Story. Read about how to contribute yours here.

Angie is one of the writers here at PanemPropaganda and one of the contributors to our Facebook page. Here's Angie's THG Story:

I remember being at a movie and seeing the trailer for the first Hunger Games and wondering what it was all about. One of my fandoms was soon coming to an end at the time, and so I was a bit sad and had a hard time reading anything else. My friend Melissa and my daughter suggested I read the series. My daughter is a HUGE fan. I wanted to read the book before the first movie came out, so I gave it a go. It sucked me in. I wasn't expecting that to happen with any other series. Yes, the subject matter was tough to get through. Especially being a mother myself, it was hard to grasp the whole concept of the reaping, the children, the parents sending their children off and may not see them again. Whoa..... it was heartbreaking. There were times I had to remind myself that "it's only a book", because I would get so emotional. 
I immediately fell in love with the characters. Katniss and Peeta. So young and having to make very serious, adult decisions. To me, Katniss is a beacon not only of hope, but that you and I can make a difference. A woman, even a young girl, can be heard. Our voices are important, and we must stand up for those who can't do it for themselves. "Speak the truth, even if your voice shakes."

This series has also directed me to Panem Propaganda, which I absolutely love contributing to, and to some great friends that I'm so happy to know. I love them. I love THG. And I'm proud of it. *3 Finger Salute*
