Good question.....My answer is Nature as well, including the sincerity of children.

Your answer is perfect really, how can we not be? A couple things come to mind here. I will never, ever forget the first time I saw the Rocky Mountains. Having grown up in Kansas I just wasn't prepared for that. Bob Seger has a song called Roll Me Away. There is a line in it where he talks about being on the Continental Divide where he could go ...East or West and it was all up to him to decide. That phrase became enormously important to me over the years. I have stood on the Continental Divide myself and as I looked out where the was no sign whatsoever of mankind I thought...how can one not believe in God? There is so much to nature, the fragile state of life itself, the oceans, weather etc. The first time I flew to Europe it was a similar experience. Hours of flying at speeds of 500 MPH and nothing but ocean with no evidence of land. Hard to imagine.

Matters of health humbles me now. I am so lucky Carolina. I'm almost 70 and I'm in pretty good shape. I can now feel my age sneaking up on me and that's really kind of a first. It's a humbling experience to start pondering matters like nothing is forever. Age, watching as so many others my age and even younger struggle is quite difficult for me.

Thanks for this question...it's an important one.
