Matthew asked me tonight what would happen if EVERYONE in the whole world all clapped at once. My response was "nothing".
I get questions like this all day long for years now. After a minute I was smart enough to ask him what he thought would happen if EVERYONE in the whole world clapped at once.He responded "I thought there would be a really big explosive sound, like really crazy loud."He reasoned that there would be lots of echoes from people who are in buildings etc. and this would reverberate the noise making it explosive in sound.
Matthew is eleven. He has been on this earth for a while now. It's still a strange and curious place to him. The whole thing got me thinking whether or not we ever really feel at home here on Earth. That should tell us something, shouldn't it?
