Love vs. Abortion

Love says, "I sacrifice myself for the good of the other person." Abortion says, "I sacrifice the other person for the good of myself." It turns love upside down, inside out.

How can I go to work if my truck breaks down and I cannot afford to fix it? My parents can't afford to fix it either. Is it really acceptable that I would have to walk for an hour and 15 minutes to a bus stop and an hour and 15 minutes back every day?

If that happens, I will be relegated to working where there is a bus route.

What about people who live in inner cities in places where there is no bus route?

Thou Shall Not Litter

I wish Americans would stop littering. We should aspire to higher standards and take pride in appearances. Let's follow Singapore's example of cleanliness. One way to reduce litter is to reduce the amount of packaging that comes with a product. Wal-Mart is making great strides to get their suppliers and those supplier's suppliers to reduce excess packaging.
