“Don’t close the book on me yet.”
That’s a line from this song and video, which I thought was beautifully done. The concept of being pro-life is not that it is easy in the moment but rather that things will get better.
All of our stories are unfinished.
The song writer mentions life is a gift. This is true not merely for cute kids with blonde braids. It’s true for the annoying or acerbic adult you just ran into, too. I think we forget that, because we stop being cute at some point. If we don’t value our own lives–how can we value those of unborn children, people we never met?
Perhaps I shall stop saying I’m pro-life, which most people are, but only in the limited framework that they grasp of that.
I am pro-hope–the life that is today a burden could be a gift later on. It’s happened so many times. There’s evidence for this idea that I hold so dear.
