First (and Short) Post for the New Year

by Hans on January 9, 2016 in Uncategorized

Happy New Year to you!

First, for the roughly 39 people who read this (you know who you are), thanks for hanging in there. Personally, I enjoy throwing thoughts on here as I can—some long, some short. With the school load right now, I am often reduced to passing along a song of a funny picture and leaving it at that. At times, I can add a little more. I did want you to know, though, that I am humbled that you would actually pay any mind to this (even my own mom).

I get stuck on songs and on bands. I’ve liked Gungor for some time (my last post was a Gungor song), and have shared this on social media before (though I can’t remember if I have posted it here), so I wanted to pass this along. The background to the song as explained by the band:

In 2014, a woman tweeted that she would be faced with “a real ethical dillema” if she became pregnant with a baby with Down Syndrome. Richard Dawkins responed “Abort it and try again. It would be immoral to bring it into the world if you have the choice.” Also in 2014, we had a beautiful little girl with Down Syndrome and two heart conditions. We named her Lucette, which means ‘light.” Lucie has taught us how much every life matters. This song is for her and all the beautiful people on this planet with special needs. We think that you make this world a better place.

Grace is everywhere.
