She explains to the people. " I wanted to help Colonists, but my skills in fighting were too weak. So I decided to help by melting down all of my family heirlooms(air looms).They were pewter items and made good bulletts for the Colonists. I know my things are important to me, but they are important for the freedoms which we are fighting."
