World Down Syndrome Day

I'm a day late for this one, but it's better late than never. Yesterday, March 21, 2012, was World Down Syndrome Day.

This is a special issue for me. Persons with Down Syndrome are an important source of inspiration for me. All my life I've too easily gotten caught up in measuring my worth by what I've accomplished and what others think of me. I've improved a great deal in this area over the last few years, and that improvement has been in a large part due to persons with Down Syndrome. These persons know their worth and they don't feel the need to prove that worth to anyone. They inspire me to be the best person I can be, not because they are less than me, but because they are more than me. I am become more when I follow their example.

We are all of infinite worth to God.

44,000 Abortion Survivors in the U.S.

I just read the review on October Baby from LifeNews.com, and I was shocked to learn that there are around 44,000 abortion survivors in the United States alone. This number was obtained from a post on the RealChoice blog by Christina Dunigan. Of course, an accurate number would be hard to obtain as it's not in the interests of those supporting abortion (this includes the U.S. government) to keep records of the number of "failed abortions."

These are the stories that we need to hear. The stories of "clumps of cells" that can tell us how abortion affected their lives. Imagine how you would feel if someone tried to kill you before you were born. Imagine how you would feel if you had major physical disabilities because of the attempt on your life before you were born. We don't have to imagine. We can ask them, and these "clumps of cells" can give an answer.

October Baby

This looks like a really good movie. It's coming to theatres March 23rd.

After watching the trailer, go to "RESOURCES" and "Watch Shari's Story." This small video may bring a tear to your eye and will definitely make you want to see the movie.

VirtueMedia

I just discovered VirtueMedia. Here's an example of a couple of their ads:
