Today was SUCH a busy day!!! This morning, I had to go to the Scout office and Walmart. Since the power was out last night and the internet died, I had to make Pack Night flyers this morning, also. I put Annie to bed, then ran on the treadmill THEN ran the flyers around the neighborhood. I had a shower and then we picked up Emmy and Ashton from school and went to the State Capitol. The Planned Parenthood supporters were having a HUGE rally there and the Pro-Life supporters wanted to be there to represent our side.
The Planned Parenthood people were outside and Pro-life gathered inside. We were the first ones there so my babies got to practice their speeches in the huge, empty rotunda.
Ashton, imagining what an awesome president he would be…
Emmy yelled and pounded her fist “We MUST believe in LLAMAS! I know the Chalk Temple does!” I was DYING!!! I haven’t laughed that hard in a long time! (Inside joke from the one-and-only Druw)
Jess, Gary and the boys came and they had great idea for my blank poster board…
PERFECT!!! Ryan even stood in front of the whole Pro-Life group and expressed his feelings on the matter and even shed a couple tears. What a sweetie…

Ryan is never one to shy away from a fight and when Ashton is with him, Ash gets all brave. These guys went out into the PP Crazies and yelled for the rights of the unborn babies. I told Ashton that he was so brave to do that. He didn’t think it was scary or a brave thing at all. He did mention that a woman took off her shirt right out in the open to put on a pink shirt. Uh-huh, that’s what we are dealing with. A little bit selfish, if you ask me. Just show your boobs to all the little boys around. It’s all about YOU. No consideration for others. Just a small indication of the attitude….
Emmy showed her sign as forcefully as she could to all the cars
Here we are, lots of Stewarts (my mom came as I left) trying to fight for morality and humanity.
I am soooo sad to report that there were not a lot of Pro-Life people there. The advertising was not great, very last minute. I only found out about it last night. But really, WHAT ELSE IS MORE IMPORTANT than this?! We KNOW what barbarism is happening RIGHT NOW, we have seen 5 videos with proof!!! We will be accountable for this knowledge. It infuriates me that all my cutesy, fluff posts on Facebook get all the likes. When I post something serious, asking people to stand up for ANYTHING…crickets…NOTHING!!! Well, except for the few warriors who I can always trust to fight with me.
Standing inside the rotunda with the tiny army of 75 Pro-lifers, looking outside at the THOUSANDS of pink shirts, I just kept thinking of Elisha and the highlighted verse below ran through my mind over and over….
We hurried home to get to Julie Anne’s birthday party.
AND THEN, after the kids were in bed, I went to the Stake Center to get my temple recommend renewed. What a busy, great, yet a little bit frustrating day.
Here is Kris on the news tonight. Go girl!
