"I have reflected many times upon our rigid search. It has
shown me that everything is illuminated in the light of the past.
It is always along the side of us, on the inside, looking out.
In this way, I will always be along the side of your life.
And you will always be along the side of mine.
Our families will be with us, and our families' families.
I am sending you this because we have shared something to exist for.
And, of course, in case anyone comes searching."
-from "Everything Is Illuminated" by Jonathan Safran Foer
