Dog Face

Youth becoming fast the grownup.
Courage with all the emotions.
Holding fast to lay down cowardice.
Creeps into all at times beaten.
Guns battering chaos from dreams.
One’s dream sleep shades of red.
Repressed from never thinking.
Never to end til spent.
Smokey tides of grey.
Plans left behind never return til then.
The ultimate duty of family.
Calls to one’s mind past caught up.

A quote in 1940 from a leaflet the White Rose Society, “Isn’t it true that every

honest German is ashamed of his government these days? Who among us can

imagine the degree of shame that will come upon us and our children when the

veil falls from our faces and the awful crimes that infinitely exceed any human

measure are exposed to the light of day.”

Origin of the name of this White Rose Society inspired by a Spanish novel.

Several courageous students from Munich, Germany would comprise The White

Rose Society in the early days of World War II Germany.

They would witness some of the atrocities of the east like the ghettos at Warsaw

and Lodz.

The main characters mostly in their early 20’s were:  Sophie Scholl, her brother

Hans School, Alex Schomorell, Willi Graf and Christoph Probst, Traut Lafrenz,

Lieselotte (Lilo) Berndl and Falk Harnack.

Their music/philosophy teacher Kurt Huber also was associated with the group.

They were funded by Eugen Grimminger and his go between secretary Tilly Hahn

who supplied them with office equipment and money.

Their goal was to flood Germany with leaflets which showed opposition to Hitler’s

regime.

They flooded the country with thousands and used graffiti to get their point across.

They had been inspired by many groups including the church at the time.  They

spearheaded an anonymous leaflet campaign.  This called for the active opposition

against oppressive Nazi tyranny.

The allies had received one of their last, the sixth leaflet which was smuggled

out through Scandinavia to the UK.  Later it would be dropped by plane all over

Germany called “The Manifesto of the Students of Munich.”  They would have the

last laugh.  Their seventh leaflet cost them their lives and jailed others.  They

would be captured by the Gestapo in 1943 and beheaded.

Germany as early as 2003 has commemorated them and others for their courageous

movement against an oppressive fascism and what they opposed as militarism at

the time.

Millions today are being exploited by rape, enslavement and murder in the name of forced prostitution.

The Vatican and women religious are partnering to combat this heinous crime against humanity.

The value of life has been marred by a sub-culture of violence, greed and abuse.

Image via Wikipedia (England and Wales)

England and Wales have stepped up to the plate to introduce crime bills to fight this scourge of society.

Changing laws regarding prostitution will be useful to the vulnerable who are forced into enslavement of sexual trafficing.

Their bill is aimed at people who exploit prostitution with coercion of force.

Force would be defined as coersion of the psychological and exploitation of the vulnerable.

Some girls as young as 14 are forced to participate unwillingly into the so called business of sex.

Sexual trafficing is considered the highest form of human trafficing.

The devestation to our youth is staggering.  They find themselves the victems of lasting physical and psychological trauma not to mention the high rate of disease.

Children are subject to sexual disease, drug addition and become socially ostracised in culture even today.

The end game and carrot to all of this is that the overall assets are estimated in the billions.  This of course is the greed factor and a harsh reality to most people today.

Image via Wikipedia (Europe, Africa, Asia)

This trade is generated both by local and international criminal sydicates.  The countries of sexual exploitation are Africa, Asia & Eastern Europe.

The overwhelming illicit sexual trade results from poverty, lawlessness, military conflict and the breakdown of the economy.

This degradation of the human spirit violates the human person and results in a negative breakdown of our human culture everywhere.

As suggested by the experts its no wonder the root causes mentioned above are a factor that needs to be addressed.  It will not be an easy task but the world needs to know what is transpiring.  

Unfortunately the fast buck is always with us.

No healthy youth no hope for tomorrow.

Norma Leah Nelson McCorvey born September 22, 1947 in Simmesport Louisiana.

She would become one of the most controversial figures in American Justice. The landmark case of Roe v. Wade as “Jane Roe” in 1973.

Norma would have a long battle from pro-choice to pro-life. She was befriended by Pro-Life Activist Flip Benham from the Pro-Life group Operation Rescue. She would be baptized a Christian and go on to be a Roman Catholic. In her autobiography she has professed to being a lesbian and surprisingly enough has since recanted this lifestyle.

Allegedly she has stated she was a pawn of two very ambitious lawyers for this case in the Supreme Court. One Sarah Weddington and Linda Coffee. The case would challenge and attempt to overturn a Texas State law prohibiting abortion.

Eventually she would grow to regret this decision. The story is that Norma stated she was raped when she was around 21 years. She has since stated that this is a lie. Her child was never aborted and she gave birth to a baby girl who was eventually adopted.

She has admitted as others have that abortion procedures have harmful consequences towards women. Her petition to the Supreme Court to overturn Roe in 2005 has been rejected.

Today May 17th 2009 at Notre Dame a protest is taking place because of the implications of a sitting President to receive an Honorary Degree from a Catholic University because of his stance on abortion and is considered null and void on record at the Catholic Conference of Bishops of the United States.

Obama has stated that healthy, peaceful disagreement is a good thing and I agree.   I do not agree on his stance regarding abortion.  I disagree with President Obama in a healthy manner.

At this historical date May 17, 2009 while writing this commentary 30 brave pro-lifers are sitting in jail from a peaceful march on the campus of Notre Dame University at Indiana for protesting and trespassing. Many of them laypeople and famous alike. One is Dr. Alan Keyes, political activist and diplomat.

President Obama and others want this barbaric practice and sacrifice of innocent lives rare but we cant have it both ways. We cant keep sending tax dollars overseas for so called reproductive rights and not find sensible solutions to our problems as well as the worlds. Especially in these uncertain economic times.

According to the Pro-Life movement abortion not only degrades a woman’s dignity it also harms her physically, emotionally and mentally. The question is what rights do the unborn have? Sonograms are proving there is a child in there and its life. Places like Rachael’s Vineyard are speaking and counseling with those who are both male and female suffering from post abortive negative fallout. Can we keep looking the other way?

The slogan today seems to be and I agree, “Women and Men deserve better than abortion.” Since 1973 over 50,000,000+ (Not including the count around the world.) babies have been aborted and one question I have asked is, who have we aborted? Did we abort someone who would find the cure for cancer, AIDS or even the next peacemaker of the Middleast? Someone’s future partner in marriage? Our world leaders–who will it be in the future to solve these economic crises that crop up on occasion? The list goes on.

The Pro-Choice movement wants reproductive rights but what will the cost be to America and the world at large for future generations? Do they understand the whole picture? There is the Pro and the Con but whose side has the better argument for a better future for America? That most assuredly is the question.
