Oh, The Humanity!
Being unable to attend the March for Life in Washington today, I am very much there in spirit. Perhaps because it's been forty years since abortion became legal in my nation, perhaps because I have small grandchildren whom I've seen via ultrasound months before I held them in my arms - for whatever reason(s), this year I feel more affected than ever. This year I am personally hurting. A lot. This year, I've spent chunks of the day crying. My own life has not been touched by abortion, or so I'd thought. But today it hit me: oh, yes it has. Considering the vast numbers of human beings not allowed to be born, how could we not ALL be affected?
I awoke today to one phrase running through my mind. We've probably all seen the news clip of the day the Hindenburg burst into flames, and we've heard the reporter's tortured response....
"Oh, the humanity...!"
OH, THE HUMANITY LOST DURING THESE LAST FORTY YEARS.
I could not march in Washington today, but in prayer I'm able to stand with those who can. And so I offer this little mini march of a few fellow bloggers' recent posts for life. I encourage you to click on these lines to check out some inspiring posts.
