Happy Birthday, Khaled Hosseini!

“Mariam lay on the couch, hands tucked between her knees, watched the whirlpool of snow twisting and spinning outside the window. She remembered Nana saying once that each snowflake was a sigh heaved by an aggrieved woman somewhere in the world. That all the sighs drifted up the sky, gathered into clouds, then broke into tiny pieces that fell silently on the people below, as a reminder of how people like us suffer. How quietly we endure all that falls upon us.” ~ Khaled Hosseini, A Thousand Splendid Suns
