Life is precious, not worthless! Life is precious, not worthless! How many times do we have to hear these words before they are believed? Life is precious, not worthless!
Mothers terminating their unborn children; they use the neutral term, abortion, so the fact doesn't register. Parents leave their children in hot cars to die. Spouses kill their partners at home and at work. Gang members shoot innocent children and residents in drive-by crimes. Terrorists use children to blow up buses, then use them as human shields to gain sympathy.
Life is precious, not worthless, but they can't see through their anger, hate and selfishness long enough to understand. We see terrorist rebels and their political supporters shooting 298 innocent, wonderful people out of the air and treating their remains as rubbish.
Until anger, hate and selfishness are defeated, these atrocities will continue and get worse. Anger and hatred brought down the Twin Towers on 9/11. Underlying this anger, hate and selfishness is the belief that life is worthless, not precious. Promote human life, its dignity and its sanctity. Pray to stop the "master of all lies" and his followers who teach us the falsehood that life is worthless.
Never miss a local story.
