Alright, here's the plan:
Every Tuesday from now through the vote in South Dakota (November 7) will be a Black Tuesday, but only with your participation.
I'm asking each of you to don your black in memory of all those babies that will never be born and to unite us in our quest to save more from suffering that fate. It will be a day of mourning but also a day of hope. A day to mourn the generations that we will never know, and a day to pray that everything will change so that we will not have to miss out on another generation of amazing South Dakotans.
This is bigger than supporting the ban, or the vote...this is supporting the babies, and supporting the mothers who chose to give life instead of take life. It's also a way to reach out to the mothers who may have aborted their children long ago but have been mourning since. We will join them in their mourning, share in their pain, and affirm that an injustice has been done.
Yes, we could just all wear our Vote Yes shirts, but not everyone has those. Besides, like I said earlier, this is about children and mothers, not about a political agenda. Each Tuesday, I'm hoping that you will get together and pray for life as well as those who will never enjoy life, together. I'm hoping to get something formal -- a prayer service or something -- organzized for anyone on the SDSU campus, but regardless of whether or not something huge is organized. Please, pray.
I pray that God would work in your heart that you might feel emboldened and peaceful enough to don black tomorrow. I pray that this can become a solemnly hopeful movement for the sake of life. Peace be with each and every one of you.
