Love and Parenthood and Humanity
There is something special about being a parent. Nothing can change the relationship I have to my child. I am their father, and they are my child.
In a world where relationships start and end based on romance, geography, politics, and more; It is refreshing to know my parenting relationships is unwavering.
But is this any less true for siblings? Cousins? Distant relatives?
Perhaps proximate genetic relationship could be a reminder that we are all genetically human, and thus in relationship with one another. In that way, my love for my child can remind me to love others. I hope I am a good enough parent to somehow teach that lesson!
