“This hand says you spend the rest of your life with me," he said, holding out his left hand, "and this one says I spend the rest of my life with you. Choose." Melina Marchetta

I do not know this author, I had never read this quote before… and the end, I need you by my side… so true in our families. The father is the protector of his wife, his family and his home… but we need them alive by our sides. In the turmoil of today in America, nothing is sure anymore. I abhor politics.
