    I’m with you, Calvin. I did the same, and I don’t get the thanks I deserve either.

    Sounds like a certain orange-faced ex-POTUS that we all know.

    And that boy, Calvin, grew up to be a conservative politician.

    Well, regarding world improvement, there is one more contribution you could easily make. Just keep doing what your doing. You’ll get there.

    More people being born is exactly the opposite of helping the world.

    Calvin in 2024. His slogan will be “How much worse can things get?”

    I believe personal responsibility at 6 years of age deserves to be able to speak these tall philosophical words. I would love to join the club fellas.

    Calvin’s statements have an interestingly high proportion of four-letter words.

    This brought to mind a commencement speech given by Bill Bryson (he included it in one of his books). An excerpt is below:

    Take a moment from time to time to remember that you are alive. I know this sounds a trifle obvious, but it is amazing how little time we take to remark upon this singular and gratifying fact. By the most astounding stroke of luck an infinitesimal portion of all the matter in the universe came together to create you, and for the tiniest moment in the great span of eternity you have the incomparable privilege to exist. For endless eons there was no you. Before you know it, you will cease to be again. And in between you have this wonderful opportunity to see and feel and think and do. Whatever else you do with your life, nothing will remotely compare with the incredible accomplishment of having managed to get yourself born. Congratulations. Well done. You really are special.

    But not that special. There are five billion other people on this planet, every one of them just as important, just as central to the great scheme of things, as you are. Don’t ever make the horrible, unworthy mistake of thinking yourself more vital and significant than anyone else. Nearly all the people you encounter in life merit your consideration. Many of them will be there to help you–to deliver your pizza, bag your groceries, clean up the motel room you have made such a lavish mess of. If you are not in the habit of being extremely nice to these people, then get in the habit now. Millions more people, most of whom you will never meet or even see, won’t help you, may not even be able to help themselves. They deserve your compassion. We live in a sadly heartless age, when we seem to have less and less space in our consciences and our pocketbooks for the poor and lame and dispossessed, particularly those in far-off lands. I am making it your assignment to do something about it.

    If that isn’t narcissism, then I don’t know what it is.
