Life is Precious - Trig Palin
Blessed Are the Meek For They Shall Inherit the Earth
I have been thinking about this since I saw Sara Palin give her speech at the Republican convention. It is not her speech that I am referring to. I am referring to a scene that I saw in the crowds.
Many of the pundits made passing remarks about it at the time but to me it was undoubtedly the most moving and powerful statement that has been made throughout the whole political campaign, and it was made without saying a word.
I am talking about Trig, the young downs syndrome child. In the audience the camera panned to the image of Sara Palin's youngest daughter, Piper, licking her hand and using the spit to fix Trig's hair, as he lay in her arms, looking like a little cherub.
I recently did a hub called Gods Rebels. See:( http://hubpages.com/_2jwewv9mo92mc/hub/GodsRebels ) Trig is a perfect rebel. As he lay there innocent and pure, he was in perfect obedience to The Almighty. Trig's very existence infuriates wicked men. The unscripted love between Piper and Trig was undeniable. I know that millions of people felt joy as they watched that portrait. Could anyone stand up and say this child should not live?
And yet, some do!
It is a testimony against millions of abortions, done for nothing more than convenience. What he and his big sister said, without a word, is more than ten thousand orators could utter in a lifetime. Life is precious!
They Hated Him with out a Cause
Trig is a perfect example of walking in the shadow of the Almighty. Think of what a precious image of Christ that this child is being used as.
Trig is innocent and without sin. -as our Lord Jesus Christ was. (Yes, I Know Jesus Christ was born of a virgin but this child, who knows not good and evil, is still innocent in the eyes of our Father. He is not Christ, but he is a shadow of Christ.)
He has done evil to no one, yet he is hated simply because he exists. The love that he and his sister have shown, is a testimony against the brutal violence done against innocent children. It exposes the sin of wicked men that is why they are hated.- as was Jesus Christ the Lord.
Together these two kids preached to more people more powerfully than most evangelists will in a lifetime. For this they will be hated for years to come.
It is sad to think that human beings could have that kind of darkness in their heart, but it is true.
Sad but True
In case you don't believe that this child is hated here are a few exerpts from different media outlets:
"According to the Globe and Mail, Dr. Andre Lalonde, executive vice-president of the Society of Obstetricians and Gynaecologists of Canada (SOGC), is worried that Palin's decision to give birth to Trig, despite knowing about his condition, could influence other women in similar situations, but who lack the financial and emotional support that Palin had access to."

Dr. Lalonde added that he was very worried about the affect it would have on the abortion issue. He fears more women will keep their child!
Wanting someone dead constitutes hate in my book. What about you?
I imagine that would really hurt his bottom line.

Just one more and then I'll quit:
"Her down syndrome baby is partly named after Van F****** Halen!!
Yes, Trig Paxson Van Palin is a direct homage from Governor and Mr. Trash to one of their favorite bands.
Van Palin. Yes, we would have a VP who named their kid after Van Halen.
God help us."

Sara Palin and family
Life Goes On
I am not going to get into how the media and others have attacked Sara Palin and the rest of her family.
It is about one and a half months to the election. I don't know who will win. Doubtless it will get dirtier and more raucous as the election nears. No matter who wins or loses Trig and Piper have preached a pure message. My prayer is simply that it reaches the hearts of those who saw it.
