The 4th message on Phoebes porch.  
How does this connect to the theme of the story?
Life is full of both joy and sorrow, and we can't stop the sorrowful things from happening. But we can try to hold on to hope and bravery so we don't let sadness overtake us.  We have to keep going on our journey, but connecting to others can help give us strength.
