Important: Please Read

This is going to be a long post by way of a couple of other blogs.  Please stick with this to the end as there is a very important message to be shared.  

The material you will read in the following links has been written by two very special mommies.   I will not elaborate on what they have written.  They have done a much more adequate and eloquent job addressing these issues than I ever could. 

I have been reading the blog of a wonderful little boy named Alex for several months now.  I checked on him yesterday evening and was taken aback by what I read.  Please go to Alex's mommy Jessica's blog, A New Kind Of Normal  to read what she had to say.  Within her post is a link to another special mommy Tamara's blog.  Please go there by clicking on the gray text within the second paragraph of Jessica's post.  This is where the whole story started.  I know this is a lot of linking, but I would not ask you to do this if it weren't so important.   

We need to put a stop to the ignorance, intolerance and hatred that is thrown at people who are "different".  After all, that kind of hateful attitude toward those who were "different" is where the atrocities of the Holocaust came from.

Thank you.

We will all have our day in Gods judgement and luckily people like that will be kneeling at the merciless God and He will see the judgement passed by that anonymous soul!
I love you three so much...miss you!

I agree with Tate on this one. How awful. I can't believe that there are people out there that would be so hateful.

Marissa is EVERYTHING to this family.

In fact, I am so looking foward to spending time with her on Saturday! Yea!!!

Love you all!

I posted a comment on both Tamara and Jessica's site. As I said on the blogs, either the purpose of the comments from anonymous were to help us re-affirm our own faith or a way for us to witness to a person who has either turned away from God, or who has never known God. Someday she will understand.
