My theory--

Nature gives sleeping children that angelic demeanor, that pure poetic innocence, simply so that sometimes they will actually live to see another day.

I am not sure about what you wrote.

But, I do know that nature gives us lots to be thankful for.

Unconditional Love (willingness to give and receive)
Lots and lots and lots of food
Children and young animals
Beauty (physical and inner)
Forgiveness (willingness to give)

And so many more things. What else can you think of Daisy?

Great Post! Great Idea!

I want to take the time now to tell you thanks for being my blog friend and always supporting me. I love you as a friend.

That is assuming that they are actually sleeping and sleeping in their own bed.... Jaguar

It does. Its not restricted to children of the human race either. If you have a look at nature in its variety of creatures, except reptiles and bugs I guess, all infant warm blooded mammals have this "cute" quality in common. However, only humans connect this look with divinety.

We do that because the qualities we attribute to these lovely beings, the infants not the angels, is that of purity and a helplessness that hinders them from doing us any harm, thus we have no reason to fear them, but instead we instinctively become protective towards them.

Its nature's way of preserving any race.

Unfortunately, we are the only speciment that will consider children in a war zone collateral damage.

One wise person once told me if all the generals in the world were women, mothers to be precise, thatn war would decline to an all time low. The reason being that female generals would feel the pain of giving birth and life to a being, and thus be much more reluctant to take life away.

Children are angels that's for sure, but what do we do to ensure a better world for them is another story.

Home Depot gives us rubber mallets. Rubber mallets allow us to knock out children so they actually become those sleeping angels we adore rather than remaining those feral mongooses which drive us to seat ourselves inside the liquor cabinet.
