Fred Moore grads provide hope

I would like to be invited to a Fred Moore graduating class someday, to be inspired by these young adults.

They have probably had more challenges than all the high school seniors this year. They have an appreciation for things and people beyond their precious young lives.

I am 80 years young, and it takes a lot for me to be blown away by words. But what they have accomplished is inspiring to me.

It gives me great hope for our future generations.

Greatness requires chance to live 

There has been much written lately about the unborn. On May 20, a brief article appeared in the Denton Record-Chronicle about a group of abortion activists who gathered at the Alabama Capitol chanting, “My body, my choice!” and “Vote them out.” I couldn’t help but think, had their mothers said those same words, their own voices would’ve been silenced, and their lives denied.

The autonomy over a woman’s body should begin before she makes a decision to perform an act that may produce a human life. To those who argue it’s not fair for children to be born unwanted or in poverty, it’s also not fair to deny them the opportunity to rise above those circumstances. So many famous people in this world have overcome adversity and lived to achieve great things.

In 1963, an unassuming man of God and civil rights activist named Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. stood before the Lincoln Memorial in Washington and delivered his famous “I Have a Dream” speech. His words inspired a generation, and beyond, to make the world a better place to live. What if that great voice had been silenced before birth?

The day will come when each one of us will have to stand before our creator to give an account of ourselves. Those of you who support taking the life of an unborn child, as well as those who provide such services, will grieve when you are forced to hear the voices of these tiny beings say: “I too had a dream — but I never had a chance to live it.”

As Deuteronomy 30:19 says, “Choose life.”

'Migrants’ could be the magic word

Illegal aliens — some people call them migrants, but they are still illegal. They cross the border and receive shelter, a place to sleep, food and basic medical care, all provided by our government.

So I wonder if we couldn’t reclassify our homeless as “migrants” so they could receive the same benefits. Just wondering?
