Last week, the horrible shooting happened in Connecticut. This tragedy caught our nation's attention and we were engrossed and deeply saddened.
We heard many say we must do something. They suggested gun control, increased mental illness perogatives, curbing violent video games and movies.
We should hold our children and grandchildren more tightly.
These are positive ideas, but I say the place to start is to re-sanctify life, re-glorify life and renew our respect for life from conception to a natural death.
Every week in Lincoln, Nebraska, 20 unborn children are aborted. The same number that were murdered in Connecticut.
These defenseless, innocent children are killed before they are born, let alone reaching the age of six or seven.
Yet, there is no outcry or national outrage against these deaths. Instead, we are told to support health insurance to pay for these abortions.
When we decide life is precious at all stages and will protect life at all stages, then we have taken a huge step towards eliminating mass killings.
In the meantime, 20 unborn children in Nebraska, along with hundreds elsewhere, are killed week after week.
