Tonight, two girls boarded two planes headed for two boys in two states. One couple is engaged to be married. The other is split up. And yet perhaps the “broken” couple is just as close as the other.

I thought of these two girls as I drove home tonight. Their excitement, their true emotions, and the way their relationships have unfolded these past few years. How is it that they have moved along such separate but parallel paths?

It’s as if they are both walking along the same river, but on opposite sides.
