On the other hand, I will always wonder what might become of them, or how their lives will turn out. They are sort of like old friends living in a distant land.(less)

“You never know how much you really believe anything until its truth of falsehood becomes a matter of life and death to you. It is easy to say you believe a rope to be strong and sound as long as you are merely using it to cord a box. But suppose you had to hang by that rope over a precipice. Wouldn't you then first discover how much you really trusted it?”
C.S. Lewis, A Grief Observed

“Not knowing when the dawn will come
I open every door.”
