Let Us Never Stop Our Efforts

25Jul12

Many of us take a stand for life every day. We spend our free time speaking out for those who are sentenced to death. We stand outside abortion clinics and try to persuade mothers to keep their babies. We start campaigns, give speeches, set up displays at colleges, collect signatures, argue court cases, and counsel mothers in crisis. We try our hardest to rescue “those appointed to die.”

Let us never stop our efforts, but let us also remember to value the lives of the family and friends around us. Let us not forget how precious these lives are. Let us not lose the preciousness of our baby’s smile or the sticky fingers that wrap around our necks after breakfast. Let us not lose the moments of easy conversation and the fleeting family time that we have today. We may not have them tomorrow.

With all that is in us, let us fight for life. Let us protect every life. But let us also, with all that is in us, love the life all around us. Let us open our eyes and see the blessings in front of us.
