As the plane prepares for landing I notice again that the babies on board begin to cry.
I can imagine the horror they are going through.
We as adults dislike the pressure that we feel.
We escape it by chewing gum.
We endure it knowing it’s temporary.
But for those poor babies; they cry in pain.
And in confusion.
They can’t understand why they feel that pressure in their head.
Their parents try communicate to their child saying it will be alright.
The infant more than likely doesn’t know those words like “cabin pressure”
Its short life so far; hasn’t experienced such a thing.
So he or she cries on.
As soon as the plane hits the runway.
The pressure balance is restored.
Instantaneously the babies stop crying.
Age and experience is a teacher.
