In all the post-election drama, little things can be missed. But sometimes in life, the little things are what matter most.

It was a routine trip to the hair stylist that brought this phenomenon again to my mind. I was sitting in the styling chair, contemplating election results, when I heard a young boy bound into the salon. He was there with his father for a routine haircut.

It is not an overstatement to say that this little boy brought life and a healthy dose of joy into this environment. His zest for life was infectious and immediately elevated my mood.

Children liven things up! They make us see life from a different, fresh perspective. As we attend to their needs, they can bring out the best in each of us. In welcoming the child in our midst, we are welcoming new life.

My next eye-opening experience came in the confines of my office, as I met with a young immigrant woman who has just joined the pro-life cause. She smiled broadly as I discussed breakthroughs in pro-life advocacy. She is excited and motivated to enhance our efforts to reach out to our Commonwealth with a message of life-affirming love.

 It is always wonderful to welcome a new person into the pro-life movement. They bring with them an enthusiasm that is contagious. New faces reinvigorate our movement and help strengthen it. As advocates for life, we should always be in recruiting mode, bringing new people into the fold.

I realize that, as pro-lifers, we face a number of challenges in the coming year, especially in my home state of Pennsylvania. But we can look to the future with hope, knowing that our cause is just and that life will, indeed, win in the end.
