Together Forever

Archaeologists in Pompei, Italy have unearthed these skeletons, locked in an embrace, believed to be between 5,000 and 6,000 years old.  While the circumstances of their death must have been horrific, what's really evident is the comfort they must have been providing for each other in that terrible time.  Their love must have been a strength, must have given them courage.  We are meant to support each other, to give and take of help and esteem.  A beautiful relationship is one where we're better together, when we create a new entity that is "us".  An "us", that is more than just the sum of the two of us as individuals.  It's that feeling of "us" that gives us resilience, hope and comfort.
