Take a lesson from nature

The Spokesman-Review

What to say about baby Izayh. Another little life so brutally taken, and for what? A woman’s poor choice in child care? A man, whose evil acts led to murder?

These are all questions that are never answered. It is so commonplace now in our society, bringing babies into the world that don’t seem to stand a chance in hell of surviving, given their present surroundings.

For the life of me, I cannot grasp a woman leaving her baby with some guy in lieu of family. I cannot understand a woman not fiercely protecting the life of her child from clear and present danger.

Look at the animal kingdom. God help a predator coming between a momma and the cub, pup, etc. she is with, for she will fight to the death to save it.

If only women could look at life that way and realize the precious gift they have and fight to keep it safe and sound.
