When I looked at my own newborn, 21 years ago, I remember being dazzled by how miraculous ‘life’ was. I had made a human being, who would have a character and personality and DNA unique to him. I thought about how many lives each life touches, how many lives my son’s life would touch or change. The miraculous thing that life is, is a mystery and a miracle and on some levels just inexplicable. When I looked at my friend’s newborn today. I was struck again by the sheer amazement that comes from witnessing a brand new life enter the world. Who will she be? Where will she go? What will she change? We are amazing, each one of us, what we do should justify that amazing, miraculous, inexplicable gift, life.
