Every Life has Value

"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
with Gov. Mike Huckabee
"He who saves one life saves the world.  That one life does matter."~Gov. Mike Huckabee
 I 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

True Leadership with Intergrity

"Let this be our time in history so that someday we can tell our children and grandchildren that we were there, that we changed the course of history for the better." ~ Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker
Naomi and I with Gov. Scott Walker
"We need leaders who think about the next generation (our children), not the next election." ~Gov. Scott Walker 
Gov. Scott Walker of Wisconsin, is a person with conservative values, integrity and one whom does not sway from their principles or beliefs; despite relentlessly hostile political environments at times.  He and his family have been stalked and threatened; yet he did not back down or go against what he felt was right.  

He has taken often difficult, bold steps to bring economic freedom and prosperity to the his state.  Never giving up or giving in, makes him a true fighter and a great example of leadership.  It was a thrill and honor to meet and speak with him tonight.
"Looking at American's history, ordinary people did something extraordinary.  Leaders risked their lives for freedoms that we take for granted today.  That's what instills confidence.  That's us.  We will move forward and prosper because that's who we are as Americans." ~Gov. Scott Walker
