I believe most everyone has heard of Adam, the first man (the first human being, for that matter) created by God. And many people know of my firstborn, my son Adam, who is the creator of ToledoLinks.com. Well, today is Adam’s birthday and it’s a day for celebration, reflection, and tribute.
As part of my tribute, I offer the following website referrals:
Over at ‘PBS Kids, It’s My Life’ you can read Birth Order: First Born.
Wikipedia has more about ‘birth order.’
Jewish Magazine has an article Redemption of the First Born known also as the “pidyon ha ben” that is about a religious belief, ceremony, and ritual.
The Self-Ruled Antiochian Orthodox Christian Archdiocese of North America did have an article on the internet entitled The First Born, but since this Roland’s Ramblings entry was first written, unfortunately, it is no longer on the world wide web.
Steven Reinberg, reporter for HealthDay News, wrote an interesting article that I am sure Adam would love to have his younger brother, Marcus, and younger sister, Lisa, read.
Its title is To the First-Born Go the Smarts.
With loving wishes: Happy Birthday, Adam.
You are the type of man that all young men should aspire to emulate.
I am so proud of you.
