it is one of a child's first words, the beginning of their search for knowledge. it is a mother's cry as a rebellious teenager has made a bad choice. it is the lament of a man losing his job, unable to support his family. it is the wonder of a husband and wife waking up next to each other for the first time. it is the reaction to the loss of a loved one. it is the reaction to the gain of the world. it is the soldier's question heading into war. it is the catalyst of a new scientific discovery. children have asked this question from the beginning. philosophers and theologians have still not found the final answer. it is the voice of humanity.
