"There is an ancient Chinese myth about the red thread of fate. It says that the God’s have tied a red thread around every one of our ankles and attached it to all the people who we are destined to come into contact with, and ultimately connect with in our lives. This thread can stretch and tangle, but it will never break.

If two lives are meant to touch, the universe will do anything to make the connection. Certain ties cannot be broken, no matter what obstacles arise; no matter if all hope is lost, the connection will be made. Across space, across time, along paths we cannot predict, nature always finds its way.

490,000 babies will be born today, each of them unique and each of them connected somehow to the greater human chain. It could be said that as soon as the umbilical cord is severed, they’ll become an individual with their own hopes, dreams and desires. But in fact, we are all made up of systems, trillions of cells and DNA organelles, all creating a network. Each one of us is a living, breathing community. Every dream we attain to, every desire we harbor, every hope we fulfill has a far greater impact than any of us can imagine.

The threads that connect us are not bound by space and time. What seems to be individual, like a twist in fate, is actually just one of those threads being stretched, distorting it to how things should have been all along. Even when it may seem like those threads are frayed, they will never break. But sometimes, the most important connections in our lives are here and now. This does not mean that we only have one path to take in life. Sometimes we have to choose.”
