Once there was a young man, who like you, sat in this very hall, walked this castle’s corridors, slept under its roofs. He seemed to all the world a student like any other. His name: Tom Riddle. Today, of course, he’s known all over the world by another name, which is why, as I stand looking out upon you all tonight, I’m reminded of a sobering fact: Every day, every hour, this very minute, perhaps, dark forces attempt to penetrate this castle’s walls. But in the end, their greatest weapon… is you.
Beck, your fiance, takes you outside the city, to a park with a large hill and you lay there for hours as it gets dark two days before he leaves for space. When the moon and stars come out he points out what you think is a really bright star next to the moon. "See that there? That's Mars. I want you to know where it is so that if you're missing me, you know where to find me."
