He is perfectly soft, easy to hold.
He is warm, infectiously so, of body and soul.
He smiles, a lot.
He cries, just a little.
He soothes the hearts of many.
Soon, he will throw a ball, spell a word, write a story, kiss a girl, walk to class on a crisp autumn morning, teach a younger a lesson, or maybe even save a life. Surely, he will. You just know he will.
All the while he will feed his family joy. Â And this is just, and right.
But now he is like the first warm day of spring.
He has 4 million brethren, and today one of the responsible scientists earned a nobel prize.
And this too is just. Because this much love and joy, times 4 million, equals a whole bunch of rightness. And our world is clearly better for it.
Thank you science.
Thank you, Dr Edwards.
