Silent ones, I will be your voice

To be the voice that can't be heard. The silence is a voice in itself, speaking volumes if only we'd listen. It tells of the lives that never got to be, but were.

They were.

And even if you explain it away, these are souls, not just bodies. And they need a voice. And HE is that voice. And HE is to give me that voice.

My mind wonders to thoughts of a child, gasping for every breath, but with lungs too frail to survive. I see the fight in his eyes, the desperation of his sweet spirit. And I know his own mother chose that.

That her own child would suffer. And die.

I'm hooked. One thought of this helpless life, and a warrior rises up in me.

My heart bleeds for each one of these silent ones. I will not remain silent. I will be a voice. Their voice. And I will tell the world of this.

  2. I posted that on my facebook about two weeks before we found out Eli had Potter's. I was so outraged by this. I told my husband it makes me want to camp out at these "hospitals" and hold those sweet babies when they come into this world just so they will know even a few minutes of love here on earth.

  3. I've seen this video before and it shocked me that hospitals do such a thing. I can't even imagine working there as a nurse and just letting it happen.
