A good hiatus, which I expect to blog about in the future. I was in Ukraine where I stayed at a transition home for young girls, some of whom came from the streets of Odessa, others from the Ukrainian orphanage system. Second week was spent running a summer camp in a small village. So much that I learned and saw and experienced that I hardly think I’ll ever be able to put those thoughts to paper.
But if I were to make any application for this blog it would be to say I learned (experientially, and not because someone preached it or told me) there are no unwanted children, only those we choose to label as unwanted.
It was good to be away. But now I’m back, and apparently, back to lots of abortion news. A huge article on Linda Gibbons in the National Post, which I’m sure you’ve already seen, and then the news today that Canadians are almost entirely unaware of what Canadian abortion law is.
This speaks to the apathy factor, which is, of course, much larger than the anti-abortion/pro-abortion camps combined. So onwards in engaging this apathy and the ongoing sympathy that exists toward abortion amongst really well meaning folks. Can’t believe it’s August. Back to work!by
