This week is looking to be a beautiful week, weather wise. There is sunshine forecast and almost summer-like weather to bask in. During the day that is.

It has happened again. Tragedy has been meted out in the Nation’s Capital. Today, 13 people were killed in the heart of a Navy Complex in Washington. It is early to speculate, but in the wake of these senseless killings, we are reeling at this fresh loss of innocence. It is too soon on the heels of the anniversary of 9/11. It is always too close for comfort. One cannot help but remember the recent scenes of death in Boston, at Sandy Hook Elementary, in a movie theatre in Aurora Co, at an army base in Fort Hood, Tx, and too many more place where terror has reigned supreme.
We are due for a whole lot more peace.
We need an end to war in Syria, Sudan, Egypt, Pakistan, Mexico, and beyond. People need to stop fighting in Israel and Pakistan, in Niger, Yemen and in too many hotspots around the globe. What we really need is Peace around the World!
What has happened to people spreading love and happiness, goodwill and friendship to all around us? Don’t enough parents teach their children to respect others, their thoughts, feelings and rights? Haven’t we learned enough from others past mistakes? Can’t someone just wrap the world in a blanket of peace and make it stick?
I don’t know what is going to happen in Washington tomorrow. People there will need to get over their shell shock. They will need some way to feel safe and secure again. They will need answers and a means to be able to return to some kind of sense of normal once more. It makes me sick that tragedies like the one in the Washington Navy Yard happen. All we can hope is that one day we will learn from the mistakes that continue to plague us.
All we can pray for is peace for all.

On June 19, 1846 in Hobocken, New Jersey the first official game of (knickerbocker) baseball was played. There had been other versions of our national pastime played in the US since the 1830s, and earlier games of a similar nature played in England in the 1700s, but that inaugural game on June 19th between the New York Knickerbockers and the New York Nine began a love affair that continues to this day. America’s national sport has evolved since that day, but it is still grips the hearts of fans all over the continent every season. And for that reason, Babybox.com salutes baseball today.

On June 7th, James Young Simpson (Obstetrician [used chloroform], b. 1811), Virginia Apgar (American physician & childbirth specialist, b. 1909), Virginia McKenna (Actress [Born Free], b. 1931), Johnny Clegg (South African Musician [Album 'Third World Child'], b. 19530), and Louise Erdrich (Author [Love Medicine], b. 1954) were born. They are all great people and have contributed much to the world. Do you see the link between them (think babies)?

They share their birthdays with another very special date in American history. On June 7th, 1965 the Supreme Court of the United States decided that the law against contraceptives was unconstitutional. The Griswold vs Connecticut case led the way to the legalization for married couples to access birth control. As of 1965, contraception was legal and became a matter of choice for consenting “married” adults (oral contraceptives had been approved by the FDA in 1960).

As much as Babybox.com loves pregnancy and babies, we can certainly appreciate what that ruling has meant for future generations. Children are a blessing and a joy when sought by a loving couple. We all know that sometimes timing can be key to being able to provide for children though. Having the opportunity to choose when to conceive, or not, just makes the process that much easier for all involved. While there have been many blessings in disguise from “oops” babies, taking the time to ensure that you are able to offer your all means a lot too. Whether it is waiting to have a baby until after you finish school, or once you have established a career, these choices can be wise ones to make, financially, emotionally and even socially. Even having the option to decide the number of children to bear can potentially benefit everyone in your family. Birth control has certainly shown its benefits over the years.

Whether you choose to have babies when you are younger, older, alone, or with a partner, it is an important decision to make. Children are a huge responsibility that deserve a little forethought before being brought into the world. Once they are here you must feed, clothe, nurture, educate , love and cherish them for years to come. In fact, hopefully that love just continues to grow as your children do. Whether they turn out to be painters (Paul Gauguin [Post-Impressionist], b. 1848), actors (Liam Neeson, b. 1952), musicians (Prince, b. 1958), tennis players (Anna Kournikova, b. 1981) or just your very own special kids, they are treasures that have been bestowed upon you. Treat those gifts with care.
No man should bring children into the world who is unwilling to persevere to the end in their nature and education. ~ Plato

Swing batta, batta, swing!
And that is exactly what Babe Ruth did. He was born today, February 6th, back in 1895. Babybox.com has a soft spot for baseball, so we are celebrating the “Sultan of Swat”, George Herman Ruth, Jr on the anniversary of his birthday. For good reason too, as in his time he set records for home runs (714), runs batted in (RBIs – 2,213), slugging percentage (.690) and on-base plus slugging (OPS – 1.164). The man had a batting average of .342, was an All-Star twice, and went to the World Series seven times. Add to that his numerous other accolades, like RBI Champion (6x), Home Run Champion (12x), ERA Champion and Batting Champion, and you have one of baseball’s greatest players.
George Herman (Babe) Ruth, Jr; 1895-1948
