Obama’s Powerful Pro-Life Perspective

Share post

“This is our first task, caring for our children. It’s our first job. If we don’t get that right, we don’t get anything right. That’s how, as a society, we will be judged. And by that measure, can we truly say, as a nation, that we’re meeting our obligations?”

– President Barack Obama

 

“Can we honestly say that we’re doing enough to keep our children, all of them, safe from harm?

Can we claim, as a nation, that we’re all together there, letting them know they are loved and teaching them to love in return?

Can we say that we’re truly doing enough to give all the children of this country the chance they deserve to live out their lives in happiness and with purpose?

I’ve been reflecting on this the last few days, and if we’re honest with ourselves, the answer’s no. We’re not doing enough. And we will have to change…

[There have been] almost daily reports of victims… in small towns and in big cities all across America, victims whose — much of the time their only fault was being at the wrong place at the wrong time.

We can’t tolerate this anymore. These tragedies must end. And to end them, we must change.

We will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. No single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or prevent every senseless act of violence in our society, but that can’t be an excuse for inaction. Surely we can do better than this.

If there’s even one step we can take to save another child… then surely we have an obligation to try…

…Are we really prepared to say that we’re powerless in the face of such carnage, that the politics are too hard?

Are we prepared to say that such violence visited on our children year after year after year is somehow the price of our freedom?”

– President Barack Obama, Dec. 16, 2012, Newtown, Conn.

 

We could not have said it any better.

    For starters. God Bless America. In all schools. God is the law that made law. God is a teaching for all in schools just as history, science, math, fun. God is what will give us character, passion, personality, and strength, so we will be ready to live a life with meaning and fulfillment and experience in all lessons to be able to know what to do in life. Pray, Pledge to the Allegiance to the American Flag of the United States of America , study, communicate, play, meals, ALL that a CHILD should be doing in HIS OR HER LIFE. Churches are out there also to further their growth.
    IN JESUS NAME,AMEN
