One person has so much power to affect the lives around them both in offering strength and in moments of weakness!

We were told of a child who was going to be born and die soon after birth. Abortionists had told the parents to "terminate." The father worked with children in a disciplinary public school; his heart of compassion and his wife didn't hesitate in defense of their own child.

The students were told about the baby's situation. On the day of the baby's birth, the substitute teacher recommended that everyone pause for a moment of silence for the teacher's wife and baby. To the substitute's surprise, the troubled kids all around the room folded their hands in prayer and bowed their heads.

That little baby, in his short life, helped bring about a moment of compassion, a moment when these kids who had been kicked out of schools around town because of major problems took a moment to turn to God.

Intrinsic human dignity is separate and beyond our strengths and our weakness.

You ? one person ? can help be that voice for the unborn who have no voice and for the women to afraid to speak out!
