A heart beat. One after another after another. It’s what counts off the seconds of our days and accelerates at the thought of a loved one. It’s the pulse of our emotions and the first thing we check to determine if a person’s alive. In fact, it’s one of the very signs of life, not only in living, breathing humans outside the womb, but the tiny, living humans inside the womb.

These tiny little lives make my own heart beat a little faster with the want to make their silent voices heard. As we celebrate the Sanctity of Life this weekend, join me, won’t you, in the plea for their case? Their heart beats are worth it; they are the miracle of life.
