The Memorial

Lutherans For Life
Right to Life

There are a number of chapters, groups, concerned, for the unborn children who have been denied the right to take their first breath.
Out in the countryside, near where I live, is a small berg,  or spot-in-the-road, called Leapolis.
Leapolis has several bars and a church.
The church sits atop a hill. Just down the road from the church is a cemetery.

A memorial stone has been placed in that cemetery, and the inscription reads as follows:
"In loving memory of God's unborn, denied the precious right to life." At the bottom it reads: "God alone is the Lord of life from its beginning until its end."
A friend and I took a road trip to visit this memorial last fall. The stone reminds me of a giant tear drop, shed for the lives that never were.
I thought it fitting to share this today, as our local Lutherans For Life recently posted a listing of signatures in the local newspaper. Those who added their names believe in the preservation of  human life, which includes being against abortion.
If you're ever in the area, stop and take a look at this beautiful memorial.
I guarantee that it will touch you.
