I'm not a parent (thank God, I'm too young), but just about every parent I know tells the same story - the birth of their children explains everything. At that moment, the meaning of life is perfectly clear.
I cannot even begin to imagine the joy and burden of responsibility. While I cannot imagine just how great a gift children are, from what I can tell, they are a blessing above any other.
I thought for a good long while about what the meaning of life is. I asked a zillion people, it felt like. (Far too many of them said "42.") And then I realized it. You can't really define the meaning of life. It's different for everyone.
