Christopher McCandless is a kid who left everything he knew, everything he had. He was looking for something in life. Something more, I guess. He travelled into the wilderness, alone. And that's the way he died.

His last journal entry had one line in it that has stayed with me. "Happiness only real when shared".

He was right.

Ben found Charlotte, or Charlotte found Ben. It doesn't matter. Maybe they found each other. After spending this weekend with them, I know they have real happiness. How do I know? I was there the day Ben was born...and this is the happiest I've ever seen him.
