I attended a wedding today. It’s scary, watching a friend get married and knowing he’s exactly your age. It’s at once joyous and solemn and incredibly thought-provoking. It marks the beginning of life for two people together - "in sickness and strength, for better or worse... ". Those words as spoken bear weight far greater than most people realize, and yet to the ear sounds as the sweetest thing one could ever hope to hear. With those words you vow to give and do everything you possibly can towards cherishing, and caring for, another person.

With those words you pledge your life.

Whei Jie and Fabia, though you both may never read this, wherever you are, I wish you two all the best.
