Through the darkness, there comes the light. Sometimes soft and timid. Sometimes strong and bright. It caresses the trees and illuminates the path—encouraging exploration and life. It tenderly wakes the day, and patiently welcomes the night. Never wavering, always moving forward, through the darkness, there comes the light.
