at the same time, the world can be an ugly place. how could i think about bringing another child into the world when there are so many children without families, food, housing, education, or love? how can i bring a child into a world in which people still manipulate each other, blow each other up, tear down trees to build malls, and leave people on the street to starve? the point of this blog is to remind myself that there are simply beautiful things in the world and that not everything is bad. which side of the story will win out? would having children change how i feel about the world?
perhaps having children is one of the most radical things one could do?
