But really, they can’t. Not truly live, at least,” he muttered unhappily. “I’m sorry, but I don’t understand. What are you talking about?” I wanted to know. “Preemies. The tiny ones. The ones born to soon and too small and too weak. Believe me, I would know. I was one. And I still am,” he responded.
