Of all the things that are important to us, none matches the value of our very lives. There’s no Manufactured Day to celebrate the assembly of our car, no Discovery Day to celebrate the mining of the gold and diamonds in our jewelry, and no Construction Day to celebrate the last nail hammered to build our home. But there is a Birthday to celebrate an important milestone in our life and there’s an Anniversary to celebrate the day we found another and joined with them on our journey. There are graduations to mark our progress and a funeral to mark our final step.
Our culture seems to understand that what’s truly important in this world is not material things, but each other. Somehow, over the last few generations, we have become schizophrenic when placing value on the most important step in the journey of life. That step always has been and always will be the first step and that step began with each of our conceptions. Our beginning.
It’s time to celebrate our conception and the conceptions of those who follow us. It’s time to mark this most important of days and begin to once again understand that each and every human being holds value and should be celebrated from the moment they became a human being.
Happy belated Conception Day!
