LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- He's known for his wacky experiments in his physics classroom at Male High School, but Jeffrey Wright is now making national headlines for a different kind of lesson -- one about life and love.

Wright’s son, Adam, has a rare disorder called joubert syndrome which makes him breathe rapidly and unable to speak. Once a year, Wright gives each class a candid lecture about his son. During the lecture Wright explains how he found out about his son’s condition and how he began to struggle with his faith. But when Adam signed “daddy, I love you,” Wright said he had a revelation.

“That's when I knew I didn't care how things work, it's why things work. It's because of love. It's something greater than energy; greater than entropy. It's the fact that what's the greatest thing? Love,” Wright said.

The inspirational lecture was captured on film by a former student of Wright’s and a WKU alum -- it's called "Wright's Law," a play on his physics background.
