The devil wants them dead. Who? Children with Down Syndrome.
Why would the devil want them dead?
Because they are messengers sent from God to teach us about love.
First, they are joyful people.
Sure they have bad days like all of us. But for the most part, they are happy and joyful people and so loving it would knock your socks off. They love unconditionally. The devil really hates that. He hates that the most.
Second, they teach us how to love.
Its a hard thing to think about raising and caring for a person with Down Syndrome. It is a lifetime of work and frankly it scares those faced with such a task. But, what parents and siblings of such children tell you, it is an amazing experience. It brings you out of yourself. They teach you the joys of sacrifice. And the devil hates that. He hates it when people learn to sacrifice for others. The devil hates it when place ourselves second or third or fourth.
SO THE DEVIL WANTS THEM DEAD
This is why up to 90% of unborn children diagnosed with Down Syndrome are killed by the abortionists knife. The devil wants that. He likes that.
So, what are we going to do to help them?
We are going to become their friends and supporters. We will make lifelong friends with them and help them and their families through life.
We are going to be an example to the world but even more than that, we are going to be an example to that mother who gets the diagnosis today and who is even now contemplating abortion that little messenger of God. The devil likes that.
There is an organization that the devil hates and I am helping them. It is called Best Buddies International.
Best Buddies raises up friends for those with Down Syndrome. Best Buddies is active in high schools, colleges and communities all across this land and to points overseas.
Best Buddies is one of the most amazing organizations that I know of.
I AM RIDING 62 MILES THROUGH THE MOUNTAINS OF NORTHERN VIRGINIA
That is why on October 19, my friends and I are climbing our out-of-shape bodies onto bicycles and riding 62 miles through the mountains of Norther Virginia, to raise money for Best Buddies and to give the devil a black eye.
There is a very good chance I will be the number one fundraiser this year. Right now I am in second place.
There is a very good chance that our team (C-FAM/Lejeune) will place third and possibly second ahead of more than a dozen corporate teams.
If you file taxes in the US, your donation is 100% tax deductible. Can you help us with a donation of $500? How about $100? $50? Really any amount will do.
I really need your prayers, too, not only that I will reach my personal goal of $25,000 but that I will complete this monster ride. I went on a training ride this weekend. We road 32 miles with 3,000 feet of elevation and I have to admit, it was really really tough.
I am willing to make this minor sacrifice in order to give the devil and black-eye and to help a child with Down Syndrome and her family!
PS If I am the highest fundraiser, when they give me the mic at the awards ceremony, I will dedicate my ride to all those precious children with Downs who have been aborted. We can never forget them. We can never give up trying to save them.
