I received the photo above of children playing during recess at one of our Catholic schools in Wyoming. The piled up snow from their playground created a fun space to play. It made me chuckle as I thought back to when I was principal of a school in Missouri. Playground monitors always made sure our students stayed away from any snow-covered areas during recess. It is a different perspective in Wyoming where the mound of snow becomes the ideal place to play.
We have many different perspectives in life based upon our education, background and life experiences. However, I think most of us can agree on the beauty of watching children play and having fun. Their joy and innocence is refreshing.
How can it be that we as a nation still have such a large percentage of people advocating for abortion rights? When the issue came to the forefront following the U.S. Supreme Court decision of Roe vs. Wade, the assurances from the proponents of abortion rights were that they wanted abortion to be safe, legal, and rare. Compare that to their slogan now of, "Abortion on demand and without apology." Where does that perspective originate?
It is my hope and prayer that we will someday create a culture of life in which abortion becomes unthinkable. We still have a lot of work to do before that happens.
