An article in the New York Times Science section argues today that love is the strongest force there is. The writer points to an experience he had observing a mother squirrel fighting, over the course of three days, to get her way into a vent in which her babies were trapped.
Yep. I've been there mother squirrel. I am sure you agree, Internet, that when it comes to those you love, especially your kids, you know you will stop at nothing to get to them when you think they are in trouble.
It's like that feeling I had at the store the other day when I couldn't find my son for about half a minute (although it felt like an hour). I was frantically calling his name and running up and down the aisle when, there he was, right where I left him. "Whaaat?" he said. It took everything in me not to fall to my knees and hold him forever, but, instead, we walked on and got M &Ms and all was well.
