on the Fourth of July

Rightly do we honor our fighting men for their bravery.  Those who have served their country are heroes.  Their lives are examples because of their courage, and the sacrifice of their lives.

Should we not respect the lives of the infants killed before they can honor their country by their deeds?  Before they can sing with us on July 4th. . . "God Bless America, land that I love" . . . "My Country Tis' of Thee, sweet land of liberty," . . . or watch the fireworks with us to celebrate our country's freedom?


Let us create a Tomb for the Unnamed Infant who died not of his choosing, but by the action of his enemy?

Let us select the best and brightest of our nation to guard this memorial, sentries to stand and announce to the world . .  no more . . . no more will this waste of life be tolerated or forgotten. 


These fallen young must always be remembered as heroes.  To those with no respect for life and those who wish it's destruction, take your hand from your weapon, and place it in the tiny hands of the ones you fear so much.  Allow their lives to lift us closer to our final destiny with the eternal creator of life.
