That spring morning a blanket of dark clouds pulled over the sun and blue sky, thunder rumbled in the distance, and rain fell far out over the sea as my sister and I walked slowly along a stretch of deserted beach on Sullivan’s Island in South Carolina. Just as we turned to head back to our car, a silvery beam of light broke through a black cloud, creating a glowing path across the dark sea and sending shivers up and down our spines.
