A TREASURE BY ANY OTHER NAME
by Aubry Rose
On this fateful day 40 years ago, our nation equipped its selfish citizens with the tools to prematurely dispose of & rob the world of its rightful treasures, treasures that without a doubt would have made us richer today.
Because, as we are all too familiar, treasure only increases in richness with each passing breath of time. As a society, we celebrate & hold on to antique objects (family property, vintage jewelry) to bring more value into our lives, but degrade & deprive ourselves of the priceless subjects in our wombs, the very breaths of new hope & possibility our world’s riches need to be sustained. There is nothing more true than the precious gift found in new life.
So, in honor of some of the precious gems that have made my life far richer than I could have ever imagined, I give you.. Babies (in no particular order):
And last, but not least, Baby 6:
Man, I could keep going & going. How could I not, you know? Just think of the people who have brought so much goodness & life into your own life… what if they were never there… how different of a person would you be…
Lord, have mercy on the self-chosen naivete of our country.
Help our lives bear witness to the truth. Amen.
PS happy birthday to our friend Michael Daly, whom I can’t thank enough for the joy he has brought into our lives
