HuffPo Reporter: My Wife is Expecting Twins and Im Not Happy |

This is what is wrong with our world.  Selfish, spineless, empty self-indulgent lives that lead to a type of gratification involving nothing that is not immediately pleasing and pleasurable.

There is absolutely no sense of sacrifice or honor in this report, nothing that doesn’t make me worried for the fate of this family or of these children in particular.

I welcome your thoughts on this issue.

    I would like to know what his thoughts are after he looks into their eyes.

    The horrifying thing about this is that he already has a child — so he doesn’t have the excuse of “Dad’s don’t get attached to their children until they’re born, while women get attached while pregnant.” It is exactly this attitude that furthers a culture of selfishness, a culture of death, a culture of “my choice is more important than your life” — because everything about his article/rant is focused on himself and the negative consequences to his oh-so-difficult life by having three children instead of two. Until we (as a culture, as men who are too career-driven, as women who want the choice to ignore the consequences of their actions) can see children as blessings rather than burdens, as an opportunity to enrich our lives rather than a reason our lives our impoverished, articles like this one are just the beginning — what we teach ourselves to devalue we will eventually see as valueless. — But, here’s to all those parents (and aunts and uncles and grandparents and siblings and friends…) who see children as the most valuable, the most precious gift, and know that the task of raising children right is one which certainly comes with challenges and difficulties, but which is so rewarding and worth all the sleepless nights, teenage drama, and financial strain — because you are allowing a new person with a completely unique personality and perspective to come into the world and teaching that person to become an important and contributive member of a society in desperate need of change.
