About David Swanson
You're two today and you're napping. If you're dreaming, they're probably happy dreams. You're almost always happy awake. Whatever your worst dreams are, they're probably not worse than what I fear may become of this world and your future in it. You've spent your first two years and the nine months before that in a loving family in a beautiful town in a very wealthy country that has shared a little of that wealth with us, though not with everyone.

You are one today, March 29, 2007, Wesley Neil Swanson, and 365 days ago you had not yet seen the light of day. Now you love it. Now you wake up every morning with the sun and shout your delight at being alive. You make the hand sign for light, and then you hear a bird and flap your arms like a bird. And it breaks my heart to think that the world may not be or may not stay as delightful a place as you suppose it is.
