General Medicine Reflection

The most noble Nobel…

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.  And this is just, and right.


He was once frozen, confined in a playground of glass and sterility, alone.  He was winter’s last icicle.

But now he is like the first warm day of spring.

A miracle.

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.

He sure saved my life, John. He is my joy, my miracle, and my reason for smiling. Every day he makes me smile. My heart is bursting with happiness and gratitude. John, thank you for sharing our story.
grin, tear, sniff, all of it….LOVE.

This was a beautiful tribute to a special scientist & a special child that was born because of this scientist's labor of love.
Thank you for making the effort to give praise to this Nobel winner & all the babies that have been given life to be loved & cherished. Because of his efforts, perhaps someday those babies may contribute miracles for the rest of humanity.
Love, Lorraine Kulpinski
