Peace rests on respect

To the editor:

The shootings at prayer meetings, the shootings at grade schools, high schools and colleges and at movie theaters. Most recently the awful shootings in Paris. All of these are great, great tragedies, but the greatest tragedy is when a mother aborts her child in her womb.

All of these represent hate for one another, but when all of these terrorists are caught and justice is made, there will be no peace on earth.

Yet I feel in my heart and mind that until the holocaust of the unborn is over, there will be no peace. In this nation since Roe v. Wade some 68 million babies have been murdered at the hands of abortionists and through Planned Parenthood. We will always be at unrest. All of these killers were once children, and for some reason they are filled with hate for humanity and feel no remorse for their actions.

Yes, there is a war going on and that is a war against God’s Ten Commandments and the Father’s love. Jesus died for the salvation of the world, and love and mercy is washed in His Blood. Until we are all merciful to one another, there will be no peace at all.

Respect life is protecting all life in the womb from conception until natural death. My prayer is that someday we will see beauty in one another and see life and love from the Creator’s hand.
