Precious Tuesday

Looking out of the second story window I watched as the people marched together, the adults walked slowly, many with children riding in wagons. There were lots of kids, some riding bikes, some on skateboards, and others running. Minutes later they begin to arrive. As they came up the stairs, this large room quickly filled leaving only standing room in the back.

 A few days earlier I sat down to read the days e-mail and one in particular stood out, the subject line read “My precious Tuesday.” I opened this letter and my heart sank with the message,

  “Friday January 30, 2009
Tuesday Fiona Whitt October 11, 2006 - January 30, 2009
Posted by Charley at 8:06 PM

The death of a child is likely the most difficult thing that a family will ever face. Many will ask,” why did God let this happen?” Some will say “there is no God.” Others may say “God made this happen.” Still others will be angry having prayed for a miracle but recognizing none. Tuesday died from cancer on January 30, 2009 but not before she showed her incredible will to live.

Tuesday’s grandmother would have given her life to extend Tuesday’s life if she could have. I know this because she has given of her life to protect the innocent, regardless of their perceived value to society and that includes every baby in the womb, the elderly, and people like Terri Schiavo, and Lauren Richardson. She has been a good friend of mine and she has inspired me and many others to join her in the battle to protect the innocent.

My friend Leslie Hanks said goodbye for now, to her precious Tuesday, knowing that in spite of the circumstances God is good, God is always good, and his promises are still true. Leslie knows in this time of sorrow when faith is sometimes shaken, Christ remains.

Yet even with Tuesday’s death there is a miracle here and it gives Tuesday life just as sure as it gives every Christian life, the miracle is Jesus, who through his life, death, and resurrection already provided victory over death; and because of His sacrifice every innocent child who dies is eternally protected by Jesus.

Our world is broken by sin and because of sin many adults reject Christ. Sin leads to death and often the innocent suffer. But Jesus never desires the suffering and death of a child.

The celebration of Tuesday’s life affirms the value of every human life. Hundreds of people came to honor a precious little girl. They came because Tuesday was valuable to them, and like every person she is valuable to God, created in His image with a will to live. I pray that the day will soon come when every child will be viewed with the love and respect that has rightly been shown to Tuesday Fiona Whitt.

In our newsletter the title and some of the text was changed without the knowledge or permission of the author. The meaning of this letter in memory of Tuesday may have been affected by these changes. We sincerely apologize to Tuesday’s family and friends; our goal is to show our love and respect for their family at this most difficult time. 

CO 2008 Personhood Amendment 48 Results

Election Results: Politically, Colorado's personhood Amendment 48 was trounced, but still it received over 600,000 'Yes' votes, providing a firm baseline from which we will continue the fight to uphold the God-given right to life of unborn children. With two down and one to go: slavery abolished and the holocaust ended, Christians will continue their 41-year fight in our state since 1967 to end the 'legalized' killing of unborn children. Defeating widespread injustice is never easy.
