Wow. Just… wow.
There are certain things that stand out at you in your life. Those moments when you just sit back… and go… wow.
I love the information that RedState puts out, and it’s always refreshing to hear this place talked about on the shows I listen to (Sean Hannity today, for example). The piece out of the WSJ, talking about the Labor Department limiting private internship opportunities hit me today a tad, as just the outright assault on our free enterprise system here.
But that’s not the moment I’m really aiming at. I follow many different pages and causes on Facebook. There are many that use that site to great effect. One that I joined dealt with supporting Tim Tebow’s Super Bowl ad, and has been a great source of information about the pro-life movement. So today comes across my Facebook feed a note from them about an article out from LifeNews.com titled ‘Latest Birth Stats Show US Experiencing Underpopulation due to Abortion.’ That stood out by itself, and I took a look at the article, and I don’t think the results should shock anyone. That wasn’t the ‘WOW’ moment for me.
This was. In the thread for the group following the article, someone listed a link that talked about opening their eyes. I don’t usually follow many links, due to spam and hackers, but this one just caught my eye. I’d say it was one of those moments where God sent me a message through my life that said ‘You need to take notice of this.’ The site address was www.demographicbomb.com. It’s corresponding site is www.demographicwinter.com. When I get the time to show my wife, and can spare the cash to order it, I will. The trailers were enough. They’re both about 4 minutes in length… and have enough that it should scare anybody that’s not aware of the situation. I think they tell it better than I do, so I’ll just say this: It has to do with world (not just US) population, low fertility rates, and the potential for shrinking population worldwide over the next century.
I didn’t need further proof that we’re fighting the good fight. But this (and I know some will say ‘well, duh, that was obvious’, but I’m positive others will see it in the same light I did, as ‘WOW, I never even thought in those terms’) just gave it that oh WOW factor, and will give you yet another clear understanding as to the evil being perpetrated, and the reason this fight we fight is so important.
Thanks folks, take a look, let me know what your thoughts are, and I look forward to the time when I get this, and watch it.
