The following is from an email sent out by Dr. Monique Ruberu.
When we can look into the eyes of every person. EVERY single person, and appreciate them for who they are, their beauty, their capacity to love AND love them all despite their views, their beliefs, the color of their skin, how kind or unkind they have been to us… then we know we are really doing HIS work.
Standing on the sidewalk may seem daunting or scary to some of you, but consider this: While you are present for that hour. What if you were to understand that every person there… those passing by, those walking in and out of the abortion center, those standing as an escort… imagine them all as an extension of you. They are our brothers and sisters created by God. They are flesh and blood just like you and me.
Then wouldn’t we WANT to be there? Wouldn’t we want to be the person that shares with them that they are loved, they are honored, they have access through our community to a new life, a new support system, a new community. Wouldn’t we want every person to know that we LOVE them so much because as different as they may look, or sound, or dress, we can see ourselves in them? Wouldn’t we want them to know that even if they chose to do something that we were so saddened by, we could STILL be there to love them and show them kindness and compassion?
If we are not there, nobody will be there to show them.
If we are not there, nobody will be there to pray for these beautiful people.
If we are not there, we have ZERO chance of impacting their lives and the lives of the unborn babies at all.
So LET’S BE THERE! Let us stand in a state of love and compassion. Offering everything we possibly can to give support to the people who are involved in ending the lives of OUR family. Let us look them in the eyes.. deep into their eyes and connect with them… let us let them know they are important, seen, and LOVED. Let’s band together to MOVE mountains, let’s create the impossible and be the key to transforming the lives of these men and women in need.
Friends, it’s so much more than standing in the cold for an hour. It’s doing everything we can to save our OWN flesh and blood. Our own brothers and sisters that have been created by OUR FATHER. This is NOT an option. I need all of you to do this.. we can’t afford to lose any more of our people.
I love you all and am deeply grateful for the sacrifices you have made to participate thus far. I have complete confidence that each and every one of you will step up and be present more than you have ever thought possible.
