When It Takes a Village, Who Are Your People?
As legend goes, there once was a creature who had many burdens to carry from one place to another. The burdens felt so heavy and overwhelming that the creature felt paralyzed by the task before her. Days turned to nights, and she did not move.
A fox passed by but did not help because he was barely making it on his own. A lion passed by next. Too prideful to be bothered with any burdens, he kept on his journey. A gazelle approached next and suggested the creature just abandon her burdens and carry on about her regular business. Tempted, the creature wondered if it was possible to forget her burdens; she saw their value but stood to follow the gazelle into darkness. As she stood, a light peaked on the horizon.
A flock of birds approached and landed before her. They saw her burdens, and without a moment of question, they suggested, “If you will tie the burdens into small bundles, we’ll be glad to carry the weight with you. There are more of us. No burden is too heavy.”
With a nod of the creature’s head, they did just that. With renewed hope, the creature began to pick up the bundles one-by-one and started the journey with her new friends flying alongside her. With each day, she gained confidence and strength until her burdens no longer felt so heavy.
Is Abortion Really the Best Choice for You and Your Family?
“Everyone tells me I should have an abortion. I’m unsure and really struggling.”
“I don’t know how to support the kids I already have.”
