Two March for Life moments and one foul man

Yesterday as I was on my way to work, two young women were talking rudely about the March for Life and about babies. No one smiled, no-one made eye contact. The train seemed to be more quiet than usual. I got off before my stop because I just didn't want to be near them anymore.  Later that day I met two beautiful young ladies who asked me which way Madison Street was because they were lost and trying to get to the March. I gave them directions and prayed for them.  It's funny but they were about the same age as the women on the train but they looked so different. Their faces were younger, happier, hopeful. 



At work I read about the comments of "Sir" David Attenborough. He thinks humans are a plague on the earth and that the West should stop helping Ethiopians whenever a drought occurs. Since I live in Northern Virginia and work in DC I meet people from around the world. Most of my neighbors are Ethiopian. I happen to think there is nothing cuter on the planet than a fat, smiling Ethiopian baby and I'd rather hear one Ethiopian baby giggle than a hundred David Attenboroughs saying anything. I'd rather wave goodbye to the last Panda  and Snail Darter than consign one human infant to death. Perhaps his comments would've sounded better in the original German or whatever language the Devil speaks when he's in Hell but the bottom line is that ole Dave doesn't think his precious children are a plague nor is he volunteering himself for suicide. No, he wants the brown and black kids dead. What a foul man. I'll never watch one of his shows again.
 Our Lady of Africa, pray for us.

I'm often amazed at how much I'm learning in my adulthood. People are granted/bestowed honorary titles all the time and they have no real honor. I recently watched a bit of Attenborough's gorgeous documentary on beautiful natural sites like Victoria Falls. A day or two later I saw his name associated with "Population Control" I almost wretched.

What's wrong with loving/caring/protecting nature and the love/care/ and protection of people? They talk as if we are outside of nature on one side of their mouth and the other that we're animals, and we descend from 'animals'.

The devil is fluent in ALL languages, and thankfully so are our Archangels.

I would rather not hear a hundred David Attenboroughs say anything, even if the alternative is not an Ethiopian baby giggling.

One of them can count as an inferior version of Arne Weise - if the subject is how this or that animal lives its daily or yearly life. But a hundred of them at a time? No thanks.

And I prefer if this "sir" would stick to that topic (he might even drop a few references to millions of years from those programs).
