   Almost every weekday morning I have a heavy heart. 


Because I drive to the bus stop and witness a sight that just make me want to cry.


Children dressed shamefully immodest.

{I have another term in mind but that wouldn’t be fair to the CHILDREN} - Dear Girls, Dressing immodestly is like rolling around in manure. Yes you'll get attention, but mostly from pigs. Sincerely, Real Men

This morning it was 40 degrees out. What did I see?

I saw an 8th grader dressed in a bright red micro mini.

NOT a mini skirt.

 A micro mini.

When she walked by I could see where her stockings changed material. If she could not walk and retain a degree of modesty, please tell me how she is going to manage to get through a school day without showing something that she shouldn’t?


I saw a 5th grader wearing short shorts.

By short I mean the length did not extend but maybe ( maybe?? ) an inch on her leg.

 This is not out of the ordinary at our bus stop.  The shockingly reveling clothes on a variety of these young girls {CHILDREN} is nearly a  daily occurrence.


When I see all this I become so sad. Sad that such beautiful daughters of God have no idea who they are. Sad that they think by wearing this they will be more popular, more date-able, more “in”.  Sad that they are so easily swayed to risk so much for such unimportant things. Sad that their parents seem to be more afraid of offending the children than they are of offending God.


I would love to be bold enough to go to their parents and beg them to be more assertive, more stern, more diligent more LOVING in helping  to set and keep standards.


It is devastating to me that the parents let their children own these types of clothes – much less let them out of the house wearing them.


My anger in this matter is directed toward two sources:



I blame the mothers because women are making majority of the purchasing decisions. They are buying high-heeled shoes, provocative underwear and sexy clothing that is either too revealing or covered with slogans that are sexist or have sexual innuendos  Are mothers trying to relive some kind of youthful fantasy through their little girls? Do they really want them objectified and defined in this sort of manner? Have mothers lost all sense of protectiveness and common sense?

The fathers I blame even more.  A man has a God-given responsibility to protect his children.  Out of all of the girls at the bus stop there are three who are the worst offenders. Two of the three I KNOW have fathers in the home. The man is the head of his household and ultimately the responsibility falls on his shoulders. Men know how other males react to visual stimuli… do they REALLY want their little girls looked at in a lustful way by their young male peers? Is it an ego boost for their daughter to look ‘hot’? I simply cannot fathom a father not taking a stand on this.


A duty that even a marginally adequate parent can perform is to love and protect their CHILDREN. 

Our daughters are precious  –

their virtue, innocence, and reputation should be guarded, treasured, and protected.




It is the parent’s responsibility to teach their daughters that their self worth comes not from the attention they receive from flaunting their bodies.  From a Christian perspective it should be that our daughters are a valuable child of God and that their appearance should reflect such.


Matthew Henry wrote, “The purity of the heart will show itself in the modesty of the dress, which becomes women professing godliness.”


Being modest doesn’t mean you need to wear a bursa , or dress frumpy or look like you just stepped off the Mayflower !

Girls can still be well-dressed, fashionable, and look stunning

without damaging  their modesty.

Immodesty in our little girls is the first step of a much larger plot, devised by Satan, and unwittingly carried out by lenient parents to soften them up for a much larger world of immorality.


If our dear daughters loose the ability to  blush, they are primed for a whole new level of sin in their lives.


The School System


When I was in school girls pushed boundaries…. Big gaudy make up …. Big gaudy hair….chewing gum in class…  {gasp}

But, clothing? Not so much. If you pushed the dress code very far you could expect an embarrassing stay in the principles office while waiting for your parents to either take you home or bring a change of clothing.

It would seem that like many other rules, a dress code is  now simply lip service that looks good on paper.

Even the ‘military academy’  high school that my eldest daughter attended didn’t enforce the rules.

If the schools fail to correct an offender, does that automatically imply that they condone?


It certainly does.


How disappointing…. especially since we have two girls that we are forced to entrust to this school and are influenced by their complete lack of standards.


I am not comfortable with having an 8 and 13 old seeing this – much less seeing it being CONDONED by an entity that they are supposed to view as an authority.


What kind of message does the school allowing clothing – like micro mini’s – send? Earlier this week they allowed a girl from the bus stop ( who’s perhaps around 8 ) to wear a strapless halter dress which she had to keep her hand on to keep it from falling down.


Why? Is the school worried about offending parents by expecting rules enforced?  Are they worried that each day they enforce , that they’ll lose too many of their students ? Or do they just not care?


So, if parents wont protect their daughters and the public school system wont protect our children…. Who will?

This story just grieved my heart so much.

What a shame that human life is treated so callously.


In a nutshell: Ariel and Deborah Levy sued and won a 2.9 million dollar “Wrongful Birth” lawsuit because they were not able to abort their Down Syndrome daughter due to a botched prenatal screening.


Wrongful birth is a medical malpractice claim brought by the parents of a child born with birth defects, alleging that negligent treatment or advice deprived them of the opportunity to avoid conception or terminate the pregnancy.

Our beautiful Thaddeus has Downs Syndrome. I can’t imagine NOT having him ~ much less ever thinking “had known about this beforehand – I would have terminated”.


Our happy boy!



These parents fully admit (it’s the backbone of their case) that had the testing showed their daughters’ condition that they would have aborted.


Wait… aborted is such a benign word. Let’s use a word that’s a bit more frank…

They would have murdered her.

But… they love her very very much.

BUT…. they sued the doctor for WRONGFUL BIRTH.

Ummmm…. Is it just me, or is the hypocrisy overwhelming?

I am complete baffled by the thought process. IF they love her so much, they should be on their knees thanking God for the wrong test results. Because of those wrong results they have a daughter that ~ if they will accept her differences~ bring them much joy.

They claim they need the money in order to properly care for her. That argument is wrong on so many levels and certainly doesn’t validate their stand. Unless your child has severe ongoing medical issues or you opt to enroll in expensive extra therapies, raising  your DS child is not going to cost anywhere near millions of dollars. Minus medical issues that may arise, a child with Down Syndrome need not cost any more then any other child.

I see it as greedily taking advantage of a situation. First of all, genetic prescreenings are NOT 100% accurate. Medicine is not an exact science and no doctor can give you an absolute anything. Second of all, there are a myriad of conditions that genetic testing does not diagnose.

I can understand suing a doctor/hospital if their actions or negligence CAUSED something to happen to your child but in this case there is nothing that the doctor could have done to lessen or prevent the condition.

The only thing that could have been prevented is the parents having to deal with the condition.

Many people with limited finances manage to raise a child with a “disability” (for lack of a better word) to be happy productive adults. Not only that, but in the case of Downs Syndrome, unless there is severe mental retardation, the child can be raised to be semi or even fully self sufficient.

If your DS child IS severely retarded… well, what if your child had been born that way without any other conditions? It happens.


The best things you can give your child, regardless of whether or not they have a condition, may cost you time, energy and patience …. not money.


For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
My frame was not hidden from you
when I was made in the secret place,
when I was woven together in the depths of the earth.
Your eyes saw my unformed body;
all the days ordained for me were written in your book
before one of them came to be.

Ok, so three days ago the Susan G. Kormen Foundation withdrew their financial support of Planned Parenthood.


{cue applause}


Today they reinstate it.



Outrageous! The hypocrisy of a foundation whose basis is to save lives supports an institution that is a death factory.



But what about the mammograms??? Poor women have no recourse! What about women’s health???



LIES! There are alternatives to Planned Parenthood. And as far as mammograms, it would seem that many women need to find an alternative anyhow.



“Our original desire was to fulfill our fiduciary duty to our donors by not funding grant applications made by organizations under investigation,” she said.


Brinker said in her statement that the Komen Foundation is amending the criteria of its new policy to make clear that it will only bar funding for organizations under investigation if that investigation is “criminal and conclusive in nature and not political.”

(CBS News)



Ummm…from my understanding the investigation against Planned Parenthood IS criminal in nature.



So why did they do it?



The Komen Foundation’s decision to cut ties with Planned Parenthood spurred a strong backlash against the charity. Online, groups opposed to the decision drew tens of thousands of supporters, and in Washington, more than two dozen senators called on the Komen Foundation to reverse its decision. Planned Parenthood also saw a surge in donations in response to the news.

(CBS News)


Don’t kid yourself. The ‘strong backlash’ has nothing to do with women getting mammograms. All of this is a business. A big business ($$$) supported by the liberal left. Look up the profit margin that Planned Parenthood (a non profit organization) takes in from their abortion practice. I can’t post links because it would lead to things I don’t want the children to see. Suffice to say, Planned Parenthood is the largest institution that provides abortions.






Approximately 48 – 50 MILLION babies have been LEGALLY aborted since 1973.


So the next time you pat yourself on the back for buying a product with the pretty pink bow that stands for hope…. DON’T.
