"Consider the following. We humans are social beings. We come into the world as the result of others' actions. We survive here in dependence on others. Whether we like it or not, there is hardly a moment of our lives when we do not benefit from others' activities. For this reason it is hardly surprising that most of our happiness arises in the context of our relationships with others." -H.H. the Dalai Lama
Thomas and I are the sort of couple who do not have kids, but totally feel superior to others in our potential parenting skills. Obnoxious, huh?
So I was tickled when I stumbled up on this trailer for a documentary showing the first year of life for four children from very different societal backgrounds. No matter how different we think we are, at our very core we are a small group of beings dependent on each other's love.
