Art Cox, a friend of mine and an elder of our congregation, wrote this and distributed it at work on 9/11:
Today is a tribute to the more than 3,500 innocent people who died on 9/11, and the day after that, and the day after that, and the day after that, and yesterday, and today.
They are the ones who scream out in silence. They are those without heroes to thank. The nation does not mourn their absence. The right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness was not theirs.
The eight year olds are the real survivors of 9/11. The only real innocent people who lost their lives on 9/11 are those that were aborted.
I know in Heaven there is a moment of silence for each of them, but Heaven will not always remain silent.
God bring us to repentance, and forgive, and remove our guilt today.
Working with stats from 2005 provided by the pro-abortion Alan Guttmacher Institute, the 1.21 million abortions performed that year work out to 3,315 abortions per day if you average them over a seven-day week. If, however, you cut it to six days a week, assuming that most if not all abortion clinics are closed on Sundays (after all, it’s the Lord’s Day, you know), then the number skyrockets to 3,865.
According to the U.S. State Department, 3,213 people were killed by the various attacks on 9/11. Each of those deaths–apart from the terrorists’–was murder, just as each abortion is murder by the abortionist.
