Even though we're all so different, and will never see each other again, for a moment, we're all in something together. And I think that's beautiful.
To put it as eloquently and authentically as Tolstoy did: I have woken up. I have awoken from a pleasant dream to a terrifying and exhilarating new reality that has whisked the clouds from my mind and made me feel...alive. Truly alive, in a way I have never felt before.
