50 Million Lives



Last night, I heard that there would be a candlelight vigil in Natchez for the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, to honor the 50 million lives lost in the last 37 years. My heart and mind cannot understand why our country doesn't allow us to kill some of the worst criminals in our Nation, but murders hundreds of thousands of babies each year. And then we have the audacity to ask God why our Nation is heading in the wrong direction. So, I was honored to attend the vigil, to think of the 50 million lives lost. One of those 50 million lives that could've found the cure for cancer, or been elected President, or just been able to live their life.

Avery is too young to understand how important this issue is, but she is not too young to see the moon. I guess this is the first time she's ever noticed the moon. So, as the photographer for our local newspaper was snapping shots, he caught a precious moment with Avery and her Nonna. Avery made sure everyone was aware of the moon, she said it over and over and over! It was pretty adorable, though ; )

Well, we are off to a party at Chuck E. Cheese. Pictures and post to come!

Great photo...crop it with only Nonna and Avery, enlarge it to at least an 8x10 and frame it! Priceless!
