one last tear

she feels her mother’s warmth it is so peaceful here a heartbeat reverberates steady and secure floating in her sanctuary she softly moves, aware and alert suddenly...a violent jerk harsh cold metal..a foreign sensation then pain...excruciating pain oh God, she is so helpless! before she is brutally torn away from her precious little life ...one last tear Written on 2/3/2019

Such an awful thing! 'It out-Herods Herod!' Each time we can make people aware of what this really is, that's one more step to waking up the ones who are still asleep. There is a powerful movie, 'Gosnell' that is now available through Wal-Mart.
