Recently I was reminded yet again of the ability of a single child to change the dynamics of an environment.
I was on a retreat weekend with a fabulous group of women. The sharing and camaraderie we experienced were truly touching.
And yet, I could see the faces of the women really light up when they encountered a little girl on the stairwell. The blonde-haired beauty was excited to show us all her brand-new shoes. The ladies asked the man accompanying her if this was his daughter, and he responded that it was his granddaughter. The love in his eyes was absolutely magnetic.
This experience brought to mind that every girl is a princess who ought to be treated as such. It also made me reflect yet again on the power of the bond between grandparents and their grandchildren.
And these are just additional reasons why abortion is so disastrous to our culture. It severs the sacred relationship between generations. It eliminates a whole kingdom of princesses. And it diminishes the human family.
The next time you see a little boy or girl–maybe even in your own family–could you kindly say a prayer for all those babies yet to emerge from their mothers’ wombs? These priceless treasures deserve our protection and love.
All of us have a role to play in ensuring that they receive a chance at life.
