“I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand”

By Dave Andrusko

Let-Them-Be-LittlereIt’s the nature of the Internet beast. I was just about to poke fun at a ridiculous column by an idiotic pro-abortionist when by chance I went to You Tube looking for a related item to buttress my case.

There I ran across a song titled, “Let Them be Little.” It is not a pro-life song per se. It’s just the advice of a dad to, well, let your kids be little.

But listening to the first lines

I can remember when you fit in the palm of my hand.
You felt so good in it; no bigger than a minute
How it amazes me, you’re changing with every blink
Faster than a flower blooms they grow up all too soon

brought back waves of memories of my own four (now adult) children when they were newborns.

But, strangely, this particular song I found filed under “Fetal Development.” In the corner, under that category, I saw “553,198 views.”

553, 198 views, whether they be of videos, songs, animated graphics or some combination thereof illustrate that most miraculous process: how you and I each started out the same but ended up unique.

If you have particularly clever or moving or emotionally gripping examples that express the marvelous complexity of the unborn child’s developmental journey, please send me a link.
