*Sigh* I wonder if the people who ever first pushed for legalized abortion could have imagined such insult added to injury.
Heating hospitals with the unborn:
It would be just too traumatic to have a child of a gender my man didn’t want!
Things interesting or useful, inspiring or thought provoking, pictures, poetry, videos, sometimes personal stuff, and the occasional minor rant.

It’s a bit hard to read, so here is the text:
If I Want To Be a Happy, Useful Citizen I Must Have:
Courage and Hope
I must be brave—This means I must be brave enough and strong enough to control what I think, and what I say and what I do, and I must always be hopeful because hope is power for improvement.
I must act wisely—In school, at home, playing, working, reading or talking, I must learn how to choose the good, and how to avoid the bad.
Industry and Good Habits
I must make my character strong—My character is what I am, if not in the eyes of others, then in the eyes of my own conscience. Good thoughts in my mind will keep out bad thoughts. When I am busy doing good I shall have no time to do evil. I can build my character by training myself in good habits.
Knowledge and Usefulness
I must make my mind strong—The better I know myself, my fellows and the world about me, the happier and more useful I shall be. I must always welcome useful knowledge in school, at home, everywhere.
Truth and Honesty
I must be truthful and honest—I must know what is true in order to do More

Went to see Monumental (currently http://monumentalmovie.com/) tonight and nearly every seat was full! The movie was not what I expected, it was way more.
I came away with a more profound understanding of the Puritans/Separatists who came to establish a new nation on our shores, and how history formed them in the face of unimaginable oppression and difficulties. I now know that the trite, superficial portrayals of these amazingly strong, courageous and profoundly (and unashamedly) committed Christians is either a product of shamefully abysmal ignorance or of willful, malicious distortion and revisionism.
This was a special 1 night live event, but to get it to a theater here to Rochester, NY (or your own town) you can go to http://www.demandthemovie.com/monumental/ and enter your request.
If you think you know American history, I can tell you that unless you are one of a handful of rare people, you are wrong. Period. Find out where it is showing, request it until it is, then see it and I guarantee that it will open your eyes, unless your mind is so closed that you have chosen blindness over truth.
