In Memory of the 59 million lost lives

You were a miracle, a reflection of the majesty of God.

You were unique and irreplaceable, a gift of immeasurable worth.

You were love itself, a manifestation of divine Love.

You were the embodiment of hope, promise, possibility, and joy.

You were beauty beyond that of a sunrise, and nobility exceeding royalty.

You were a mother who never lived to see her children…a father who never held his son in his arms.

You were the missing sister…the mystery brother.

You were the victim of a legal ruling you never had a chance to read.

You died while trying desperately to live.

You were important, you mattered, even though no one knows your name.

You had incredible gifts that the world never got to see.

Your death severed an entire branch of the family tree.

You were, simply, a treasure, and our nation is much poorer without you.

Today, you number more than 59 million.

You are the children lost to Roe versus Wade.

While your face is unknown, you will never be forgotten.

And I can only pray that the tear-streaked memory of you may prevent at least one more child from joining your ranks.
