 "What though the radiance which once was so bright
be now forever taken from my sight.

Though nothing can bring back the hour of splendor in the grass, of glory in the flower....
We will grieve not, rather find Strength in what remains behind." 
- William Wordsworth


We take many things for granted in our modern lives,
