Feeling Exposed and Protected
July 24, 2017
People want cover. Danger drives us together. It’s our nature. Our herding response gave our species an advantage. The herders lived to breed. The wanderers, the stragglers, fell prey. Genes of herders increased. Genes of loners receded. But our strongest cover is our parents. They’re the protection we seek. The pair of humans who brought us into the world provide the best cover. We are born helpless. Our parents sustain us.
