"Every life has value, and so the message of pro-life is not just about abortion, it's about celebrating every life as having great value, a gift from God with a special purpose." ~Gov. Mike Huckabee

"He who saves one life saves the world. That one life does matter."~Gov. Mike HuckabeeI volunteered at a Celebrate Life event over the weekend. I subject and cause very close to my heart and soul. There were some amazing people who spoke about both heart-wrenching and heartwarming stories. Throughout the day I was moved to tears many times, as well as cheers at other times.
Gov. Mike Huckabee was the special guest and key note speaker. What a down to earth, genuine good soul and unwavering Christian man. He drove himself to the event, then walked in the front door of the church with no entourage or fan fare. He immediately started shaking hands, posing for pictures and talking to everyone for as long as they wanted to talk to him.
His key note lasted about a half hour and moved everyone in the audience. He spoke from a Christian prospective, explained the value of life... all human life and why we can't waiver or compromise on what we know is right. At one point he said if the 'tent' doesn't stand with those values... then he'll leave the tent and put up his own... adding that we all need to do what is right and not waiver on what we know is wrong. Inside every human being, no matter how small or what problems they may have, have value and treasures to be unlocked.
"I think at the heart of the pro-life movement is the idea that all people are created equal, endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights starting with life."~Gov. Mike Huckabee"I'm pro-life because I believe begins at conception, and I believe that we should do everything possible to protect that life because it is the centerpiece of what makes us unique as American people. We value the life of one as if it's the life of all, and that's why we go out for the 12-year-old Boy Scout in North Carolina when he's lost, that's why we look for the 13 miners in Sago, West Virginia, when the mine explodes, that why we go looking for the hikers in Mount Hood, because we value life, and it's what separates us from the Islamic jihadists who are out to kill us. They celebrate death. They have a culture of death. Ours is a culture of life." ~Gov. Mike
