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.
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.
