In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.
"How am I going to tell the woman I have loved all my life that I want to take her hand in marriage? As we approached the quaint village of Skaneateles, NY on this calm night in December, anxiety filled the air and possibilities chilled my spine. Tonight, words will pour from my heart and she will understand the magnitude of my love for her."
