"The Strength Of A Nation"

"The so-called right to abortion has pitted mothers against their children and women against men. It has sown violence and discord at the heart of the most intimate human relationships.


It has aggravated the derogation of the father's role in an increasingly fatherless society. It has portrayed the greatest of gifts -- a child -- as a competitor, an intrusion, and an inconvenience. It has nominally accorded mothers unfettered dominion over the independent lives of their physically dependent sons and daughters....


And, in granting this unconscionable power, it has exposed many women to unjust and selfish demands from their husbands or other sexual partners. Human rights are not a privilege conferred by government. They are every human being's entitlement by virtue of his humanity. The right to life does not depend, and must not be declared to be

contingent, on the pleasure of anyone else, not even a parent or a sovereign." Mother Teresa


"The strength of a nation is not found in the blind commitment to a political party. It is found in the undying devotion to one's family and country.


The strength of a nation is not found in the celebration of the rich and famous. It is found in the acknowledgement and assistance of its poor and forgotten.


The strength of a nation is not found in the mass symbolic ceremonial praise of God. It is found in each individual's dedication to God's word and law.


The strength of a nation is not found in banks, stores, safes, boardrooms, and conventions. It is found in homes, in schools, and in the heart of each individual willing to make a difference.


The strength of a nation is not found in the ability to wage war or keep peace. It is found in the wisdom and purity that sees no need for either.


The strength of a nation is not found on a flag or in its written history. It is found in the love, compassion, kindness, and generosity of each of its citizens." Steve Maraboli
