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.
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….
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….
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.
