It’s 11pm, far too late for me to write a lucid post. But I need to get a few things out there into the world that is cyberspace.

So Kony 2012. I’m not going to explain it to you, you should do the research yourself, you’ll probably understand it better that way than if I told you. I think it’s great and all, what these people are doing. By all means, support them if you so desire, and certainly pray for the destruction of evil men and the freedom of innocent children.

But I was at work today. And I got to thinking(I have a lot of time to think out there in the fields). And I decided that America has it’s own invisible children. Who are they? Only the 50 million unborn (and sometimes born) babies that the USofA has aborted. **

That’s 50,000,000 human beings, people. Fifty million.

I read that this number of “legal” surgical abortions is equal to the population of these 17 states: Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah, Colorado, New Mexico, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, Minnesota, Iowa, Missouri, Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi. Imagine blacking out these states. Like they never existed. Like you and I never existed, basically.

“Perhaps this visual perspective helps one to grasp the number of people that are gone, dead-robbed of their God given, constitutional rights to life and liberty. How does the “most religious” nation on the planet allow such unspeakable horror?”

Horror. That’s what it is, y’all. An unspeakable, gut-wrenching horror.

I’m a pretty strong person. It takes a lot to make me sick to my stomach. Watching gory movies? I can handle that. Talking about blood and guts at the supper table? No big deal. Butchering an animal? I grew up on a farm, silly. But abortion? Murdering 50 million human lives and calling it legal? Excuse me while my insides try to defy gravity.

All good writings have a conclusion that ties in everything else that was said. Well. It’s simple. Kony is an evil man. He needs to be stopped. Planned Parenthood. Abortion. It’s no less evil. It needs to be stopped.

But we can’t simply say those words. As one meme puts it

We need to act. And I don’t just mean by clicking a button. We need to be doers, not just hearers as James would say. I know he was talking about being doers of the word. But the same principle applies here. If we care deeply enough about something, we’ll get out there and change it.

So what are we waiting for?

**Edit The third paragraph sounds like I’ve never thought about abortion before. It’s always been a big deal to me, but more so just recently. This is just the first time I’ve ventured to share a little bit of what occupies most of my thoughts these days.
