This past weekend, Tim Goeglein, one of my colleagues at Focus, visited New York City’s Ground Zero Memorial. GroundZero.JPG

There, at the southern tip of Manhattan, the names of all the twin tower victims are etched into the walls of one of the two waterfall cascades that commemorate where the two towers stood, and fell.

All the victims are memorialized…including the unborn child of a woman named Vanessa Lang Langer. 

The child was known to her family and God.

And now she is known to you.

What a remarkable and wonderful pro-life statement, in the middle of one the busiest cities in the world.

    That is amazing and so touching!  I pray that this one profound statement will help make an impact in not only legislation but in lives!

    Magnificent!  How precious that little person meant so much and means so much still.  I pray God will continue to use this precious life to open the eyes and hearts of people everywhere.  His ways of reaching people are better than any we can brainstorm ourselves.  What terrorists meant for evil, God is using for good.

    I believe the tide is turning on this issue in America - I love it and thank God for it... the result of the prayers and work of many, many prolife advocates over decades.

    Psalm 139:13-16: For You created my inmost being; You knit me together in my mother’s womb. I praise You because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; Your works are wonderful, I know that full well. My frame was not hidden from You when I was made in the secret place. When I was woven together in the depths of the earth, Your eyes saw my unformed body. All the days ordained for me were written in Your book before one of them came to be.

    I think this is wonderful!!

    If this can happen even in NYC, perhaps our national conscience still has a spark of life. We have to keep fighting until every unborn baby is recognized as a precious human life.

    Though some don't believe it, we are all children of God and should be recognized. This is awesome.

    Simply put the world considers it a life when it's wanted and loved.   Sad.
