My heart grieves because the circumstances of this story are all too similar to tragedies of other children all across our land.
My heart grieves because we as a nation haven’t figured out the answer yet! And since we don’t have any answers, there will be another family, another child whose story ends up resembling this one.
I cried out to God this morning, not only for this family in a neighboring State, who mourn the loss of their child. But I cry out for us, as people, to mourn the condition of our Nation.
As I ranted this morning to my husband about those few short hours after this child was taken, he chastened me. He was correct in doing so. We all have an idea without me expressing it, what happened in those few short hours. There certainly is no need for me to cast any additional thoughts into an already horrid situation.
And so, I. Continue. To. Grieve!
If you have followed this blog at all, you know my feelings in regards to the easy access of online pornography. You know I believe with all my heart the escalation our Nation is witnessing in sex trafficking, sexual assaults and other sex crimes are directly related to the apparent open door to online pornography.
My heart grieves because as our Nation moves farther from the One true answer; baby, children and even adults seemed to be viewed more and more as objects. Objects to be abused, used and thrown away. Seen less as a precious life, and more as a worthless commodity to be used and then thrown away.
My. Heart. Grieves.
