The Dash

There are two significant dates in each person's life.  Their date of arrival and their date of departure. 

Between those dates lies a lifetime with a full range of experiences and emotions.

With the first date the potential begins, with the last, the reality ends.  In between those important dates is a small dash. 

To a statistician, the dash is merely a separator.  But to you, that dash IS your life!
