Who I'm Fighting For




One third of my generation was killed by abortion. May the same not be true of these,
my friends' children. May they know a world of life and joy and peace.

Thus says the LORD: 
"A voice is heard in Ramah, lamentation and bitter weeping.
Rachel is weeping for her children;
she refuses to be comforted for her children,
because they are not." 

Thus says the LORD:
"Keep your voice from weeping, and your eyes from tears;
for your work shall be rewarded, says the LORD,
and they shall come back from the land of the enemy.

There is hope for your future, says the LORD,
and your children shall come back to their own country.
- Jeremiah, 31:15-17
