Life...those of us who are alive and breathing are fortunate enough to experience life, and all it has to offer-love, family, friends, laughter, the joy of experiencing the wonderful aspects of creation, sights, sounds, wonders....as well as pain, heartache and sadness, but it's all part of life. It's all part of our experience, our story, our legacy for the next generation.
What's life mean to you? Is it important? All life, or just some lives? Are the lives of just you and those closest to you all you care about, or do you care about those in your outer circle, all of humankind, those who are aging and lonely, those who are sick, those who yet to be born? Our country is facing a lot of moral issues on life and death, and we need to stand up for life as a country. Where will the line be drawn? First we kill babies for convenience sake. If the FOCA bill goes through, a live baby can born after a botched up late term abortion, it will be legal to kill that baby as it lay on the table taking it's first breathes. There is a lot of talk of assisted suicide, as well. Cloning. Farming embryo's for research. Euthanasia. Where will it stop? I foresee something for worse ahead for this country than anything Nazi Germany experienced. Life has become disposable. Life has become like a video game, I guess, where there's no value to someone when you kill them. When we get to the point of selecting who lives and who dies, who will make the cut?
You may be reading this and disagree with me, and I hope I am wrong. I hope that people actually remember to start caring about each other again, and taking stands for right and wrong. I hope people decide that human life is important, at all levels and stages. If not, we as a nation, as a society are in big trouble. If you are concerned about some of the issues, then take a stand and speak up because nothing was ever changed by those who believe in it just sitting around wishing something would change.
