Slaughtering the Innocent

On January 21st, Obama delivered his second inaugural address.  Full of fluffy platitudes, vague boasts on his alleged accomplishments, and socialistic statements, it wasn’t exactly something I enjoyed listening to.  Nevertheless, one sentence made me pause:
“Our journey is not complete until all our children, from the streets of Detroit to the hills of Appalachia, to the quiet lanes of Newtown, know that they are cared for and cherished and always safe from harm.”
And I wonder, what about the thousands of children who are slaughtered daily?
We mourn for the twenty children who perished in the Newtown shooting.  What of the 3,000 who died yesterday?
It is difficult for us to comprehend how the Nazis could be so brutal as to murder millions.  “Never again,” we emphatically declare.  But what of the holocaust going on right now?
Would it Bother Us More if They Used Guns? |

For forty years we’ve tolerated the murder of these innocents.  Approximately fifty-five million lives have already been lost, and the number climbs with every passing day.  “Safe from harm”?  Only if you’ve already been born, apparently.
Rather than giving these helpless babies the protection of the law, we have watched as their innocent blood is shed.   We have stripped them of their right to life in the name of “women’s rights”.   Women’s RIGHTS?!  Since when is murder a right?  
On September 11, 2001, approximately 3,000 Americans perished.  Even today, over 11 years later, most people can recall exactly where they were when they heard and what their reaction was.  All across the country, people reacted with shock, anger, and grief.
Yesterday, on January 25, 2013, approximately 3,ooo Americans perished.  Their deaths did not make any headlines, and few really took any notice.  All across the country, people went on with their lives as if nothing had happened.
Every day, the number of those slaughtered keeps rising.

When will this holocaust end?
