Alex's burst vertebrae had a 50% intrusion into Alex's spinal-cord; & if the vertebrae was injured a little higher; Alex would be a paraplegic. Alex says that it is a sign that God wants them to pay attention & since broken bones heal stronger eventually; that is a sign that God is strengthening Alex & Alyson's backs for heavier loads in the future; & that the broken bones allow God's angels & mysterious essence to penetrate into Alex & Alyson.

Once the realization is accepted that even between the closest human beings infinite distances continue, a wonderful living side by side can grow, if they succeed in loving the distance between them which makes it possible for each to see the other whole against the sky. -Rainer Maria Rilke
