To the editor:
Where do I find the words of Christian wisdom to have others understand how one feels when life is so violently ended?
Do I open the Bible for comfort? Do I attend church or watch the daily liturgy on television?
Do I respect the laws of the church and pray for the politicians during the most controversial time of our lives?
Although it is disheartening to see so many Americans show such a deep disregard for human life, should I pray for them, too?
I know the answer is yes. So many lives are taken away from us as we are supposedly the greatest civilized nation in the world.
Many people don't understand the procedures used on an unborn child that has the terminal diagnosis of abortion.
In some cases, they are sliced apart as they are still moving around inside of their mother. Others are injected with saline solution, which would have the same effect on us if we put our hands in boiling hot grease.
Is that what civilized people have come to? Do they hear the silent screams? Do they feel the tears that stream down from the destruction of innocents?
Help us all if life has to be ended in these forms or dramatic measures. More than 40 million unborn children have felt this torture since the 1972 Roe v. Wade decision. More than 40 million tiny human beings have fought their personal wars only to stop breathing and lie lifeless.
This will be my last letter to the editor. If everyone wants to argue over health care or Supreme Court decisions, so be it. If all want to act like uncivilized people while disagreeing or insulting each other about who is right or who is wrong, go for it.
I am saddened with the disregard of all who think life can be snuffed out so easily if it doesn't fit their agenda.
At times, my words are too harsh. I try not to show disrespect. There is just a loss of words for extreme situations.
I believe in miracles from our greater power. It includes the miracle of life. Will we allow these miracles to be silenced and destroyed?
All I have left to say is I will pray that God blesses everyone, believers or nonbelievers. May you understand the importance of life.
