We received this comment to the Memorial Day post.
“I find the abortion comment in very poor taste comparing it to the lives of the servicemen and women who have given their lives in service to their country. Why don’t your children enlist and serve their country? Or are they too precious a commodity to lose?”
Sarah wrote the post, but I will respond since it appeared you addressed your comment to me. To me Memorial Day seemed a most fitting time to remember not only those servicemen and women who gave their lives for our great country, but also the millions of babies who have been killed legally in our country. Yes, our service men and women paid the ultimate price, and we are deeply grateful for them. Yet our country, has chosen to cheapen life in allowing the destruction of innocent children. We rightfully grieve when lives are lost due to war and disasters, but EVERY day over 3,000 innocent children are killed before they ever had a chance to take one breath. We remember when the Twin Towers came down at the loss of life, but “we” forget the 3,000 who will die today. May we NEVER forget!
Also, regarding your military question. I served my country in the military. So far, the Lord has not led any of my children to join the military. He would be the One you would have to ask about that. Concerning the preciousness of my children versus others — all children are too precious to die including those unborn babies.
