I have been really into the fightFOCA campaign lately. Actually, anything that has to do with going against our nation's stance on abortion. The new recent thing is the Red Envelope Campaign. Check out my previous blog on the topic.
I discovered this exciting blog today. Well, I guess that doesn't say much for my discovery skills since it was today's "blog of note."
Today is filled with interestingness. Yes, I know that is not a word.
This is major. If enough people come together and do this, it would bring maaaaaajor awareness to politicians about our stance against abortion. Please please PLEASE check this out. And if you feel so led (and I strongly hope you do) send a red envelope to President Obama.
You may wonder, "What good will this do?" No one but God can answer that, but the campaign reminds me of the "launcher" tactic used by William Wilberforce and others as they fought against slavery in the British Empire. It's a simple, peaceful way of drawing attention to an evil that needs to be changed. President Obama, as Chuck Colson noted in this BreakPoint commentary, is confused on this issue: he rightly believes that God does not support taking innocent life, yet he is staunchly pro-abortion.
Here's the address:
President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington, DC 20550
I have a theory. Pessimism is more entertaining than optimism.
Mariah and I walked into the caf and read the sign to see what was being served for dinner.
People always say, "My life is flashing before my eyes!"
Rain puts me in a shopping mood. I don't know why.
I just came back from Target. I bought crazy socks. I seriously drove to Walmart (which was a disappointment) and then Target in the rain just because I wanted crazy socks. Who does that?! I even dragged my roommate along. But she was a good sport =]
I am satisfied. 3 pairs of crazy knee high socks. This one is my favorite of them.
I just wrote out a whole blog and deleted it. That was a wise choice, I think. The blog may have angered a few people.
