Understanding is a confusing thing.  I don't understand what is not explained, but I can infer truth from my surroundings.  Unfortunately this only sometimes works with people.  Emotion is not something to be understood, because emotion is always changing.  It is the most unpredictable part of humanity.  Even the most logical person will fall to emotion.

But what about things that transcend emotion?  Love, hate, trust, faith, and commitment do not rely on emotion to work.  Many will argue that love is an emotion, but true love continues when the lust is gone.  Hate is something that may leave, just like love, but it is not fleeting like anger.  Trust, even thought it can be broken, and move beyond the pain of deception.  Faith, the belief in something unseen at the moment, does not rely on anything but itself.  Commitment by definition is something that is committed no matter what and I don't care if I used the word in the definition.

These things can be constant.  Strong emphasis on can.  Humanity is constant in one thing, their ability to fail.  So if we fail so flawlessly, what the heck is the point?

I think that Abbi is the point, even if she doesn't know it.  Hi Abbi!!
