Stars are like people. Just because they appear to emerge from the same point doesn't mean they do. This is an illusion of perspective created by distance. Not all families manage to hold it together, everyone moves in different directions. That we all emerge from the same point is a misconception, to travel in different directions is the very nature of every being and every existing thing.

The world of dreams, hope, imagination, and memories.  

- Cecila Ahern, If You Could See Me Now
