In the party stores, this milestone is very significant- commemorated with "over the hill" signs and black balloons.
Black seems especially fitting for this 40th anniversary--
Because for 40 years, it has been acceptable in this country to kill a child who is seen as an "inconvenience" or an "accident."
Today, I am praying we will finally get "over the hill " (mountain) of selfishness and indifference that have allowed this to go on so long. I pray that we, as a country, will get "over" considering murder acceptable and appropriate under any circumstances.
I realize it will take a miracle considering the state of this country and the people in the current administration, but today, I am praying we will not make it to 41 years of legalized abortion.
I ask that you please take a few minutes today and pray with me.
