Becoming Numb to Tragedy - With Exceptions

I was saddened by the tragedy in Roseburg yesterday.  I ask that you join me in praying for the souls lost, people injured, witnesses traumatized and families devastated. 

What saddened me more was a quote from the President.  “I’d ask the American people to think about how they can get our government to change these laws, and to save these lives and let these people grow up.”  He also said, “That given the frequency of mass shootings, people had become numb to this.”

What about the unborn, Mr. President?  Shouldn’t we be saving their lives and giving them a chance to grow up as well?  You speak about how people are becoming numb to mass shootings but aren’t you just as numb as to the barbarism at Planned Parenthood? 

Abortion also takes the lives of innocent children and the mothers and those involved in the abortion decision are injured, traumatized and devastated.  We now have proof babies suffer during the procedure, that Planned Parenthood manipulates their process to harvest organs and mothers are misled or coerced into signing donor forms.

Mr. Obama expressed outrage over the massacre, but why isn’t he directing the same towards Planned Parenthood?  Just as the shooter deviously orchestrated the massacre in Roseburg for some ill-perceived ideology, Planned Parenthood orchestrates their barbarity for profit.  But instead of outrage, the President, and his political allies don’t bat an eye.  In fact, they deny the truth, support the barbarism and continue to fund the organization with taxpayer dollars.

What’s wrong with this picture?

Our home has a porch which is situated in a way that allows witness to magnificent sunrises and sunsets.  Every morning and evening you will find me there reflecting on how blessed I am.  It's also where I spend quiet time with God.

His artwork inspired this prayer:

Heavenly Father,
You created a world of beauty and wonder.
Open our eyes to focus on that beauty and
feel Your presence.  Precious Savior, guide
us to follow you in our thoughts, words and
deeds and at day’s end may we count our
blessings with love and gratitude.
