Red Envelope Day




I usually don't get involved in 'social causes' but this one has got papa's attention. Maybe you have already heard of it and I am just getting caught up with the rest of you.

It is an event where on March 31 everyone who opposes abortion and wants to let President Obama know about it will send an empty Red envelope addressed to:

President Barack Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Ave NW
Washington , D.C. 20500

On the back of the envelop you should write:

"This envelope represents one child who died because of an abortion.
It is empty because the life that was taken is now unable to be a part of our world."

This would be a great way to let President Obama know that you don't approve of abortion.

I read about this....I think it's a good idea...but I don't believe the Pres cares at all.....the party of "the common man" - environment, save the fish, protect the animals....but kill the babies...go figure!

Strider - I think its a good idea as well - I know mama and I will participate. I believe my God will 'check' Obama's heart - then it's his choice.

Got My envelope Papa!!! Writing my letter... you see, my grandson could have been one of those!! But praise the Lord, his mother could not bring herself to end his life, though he was the result of rape.

I will find me some red envelopes. I hope you are enjoying your time in Florida.

If abortion was as available back in the day I maybe wouldn't have been here. I am thankful my mother gave me up for adoption and didn't abort me.

Hi Papa, I've just caught reading your posts - they are all wonderful as always. Love this Red Envelope Day and I will spread the word. Sadly, Pop-Pop died and we must put him to rest today and tomorrow. . .with broken hearts.
Thank you for your kind words about him in the past.
Be blessed.

Indian Lake Papa said...

Russ - Thanks for your support - this is one of many ways we can be heard and be involved.

LA - so sorry to hear of your loss of pop-pop! :o( !! Will be praying extra special for you the next few days.

Red Envelope day appears to be a special day and God can use that!

I like how respectful you are of the office of President, yet it is good to remember we need to continue to pray and share our view points as well.

Love you,
