Memories of 9/11

As I think back Fourteen years ago, I remember what I was doing. I had woken up, and I heard about the first tower and then I remember hearing about the second tower. My brother at the time was working for Delta Airlines. He called home and told us that all planes have been grounded. I then I called my friend who I was to take to the airport so she could visit her mom in New York. I told her Your not going. All planes have been grounded and the mess that was going on in New York. I said to her turn on the news and call your airline to see if your flight is still on schedule.

I also remember that Saturday my parents and I were to fly out to Maryland and spend time with my boyfriend at the time and his Sister and her family. We could not make it because of the tragedy that happened a couple of days before.

This morning as I watched the news from 14 years ago I thought We remember this every year on the day. But how often do we take the time to remember the lives of the unborn children who lose their lives the horrific act of abortion every day. Abortion is the Holocaust of our day. Millions of lives have been cut short with no voice to be heard because of abortion. I wonder how many babies were aborted that day 14 years ago?

Recently we have seen videos of the atrocities that planned parenthood is doing and getting away with it. When I saw these videos, I was sickened, and I cried and said Oh Jesus help us. It is because of these videos that I found out my very life could have ended at a planned parenthood clinic before it was legal. It did something to me when I found that out.

While I talk about memories of 9/11, I wonder how many of us woke up remembering the price that our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ paid and thanking him for another day to live.  As I think about these things from 9/11, It makes me want to remember to pray every morning thanking God for the price he paid and thank him for another day. It makes me want to spend time reading his word and living the best life that I know how.  It also makes me want to take a stronger stand to help protect the life of the unborn.

I hope the memories of 9/11 that you have has changed your life and helps you realize as to how fragile life is.

Silence Is Not Golden For The Unborn

Silence maybe golden at times, but not when it comes to the life of the unborn. Yesterday I had the privilege not to be silent. Yesterday was Labor Day here in the United States. I had the privilege to take part of being at the Maryland Right to Life booth for a few hours. The Maryland Republican Party booth was right next to ours. I was able to meet Rich Douglas, who is running for US Senate. I asked him where he stand on pro-life issues. He is for the exceptions. I had the privilege to share the short version of my conceived in rape story with him. When I told him that my very life could have been taken away from me through an illegal abortion at a planned parenthood clinic, he just looked at me. I pray it makes him think. I also had the opportunity to talk with a young lady who is pro-choice. Shared with her my story and I told her to think about it as she watched the video of a 4D Ultrasound of the baby in the womb. She said she would. I met so many people yesterday most of the responses were positive. So many people thanked me for being there.

My favorite part was seeing the small children come to the table, and I was able to show them the unborn baby at seven weeks in the womb and various stages up to 30 Weeks. I would say can you believe you were that tiny. They would just look at me with amazement.

At towards the end of the day when my relief came I was able to share with them my story and let them know about the responses from the day. He told me that from all over the state they see a more positive outcome.

Over the last few days, I have been thinking that these videos that have been surfacing about planned parenthood dismembering and selling baby body parts are awakening people up. More people want to get involved with the pro-life movement and take a stand for life.

When you speak up and take a stand for the life of the unborn, you see things change. It made me glad yesterday to hear so many stories and seeing people 100 percent pro-life.
