About The Amazing Ava From Alabama, 'Peace Takes Courage' And A 'WWJD' Video ..
Jesus said he loved the children.
And This Old Brit and Richard are certain he meant all of them -- including those who were born outside the religion of Judaism, into which the carpenter's son himself was born.
We're equally sure he didn't exclude the [overwhelming majority of] children born outside his own particularly tiny [middle eastern] country. Therefore by logical extension, nor did he exclude any children who do not share his specific nationality.
So it never ceases to amaze and disgust us that some stupefyingly ignorant and/or blatantly biased, so called Christians, see and treat so many innocent infants as children of a somehow, 'lesser' God.
But then maybe that's just us - This Old Brit and Richard.
Maybe thinking of all the poor kids killed by US and UK illegal military intervention as merely collateral damage, is right. ( Sarcasm stops here ).
As This Old Brit's blog title makes quite clear, this is not a 'news' service. Sometimes we help to break and to distribute certain news far more widely and fairly than it might otherwise be. However, in the main we're here to inform, enlighten and educate.
Anyhow, to get back to business.
Today's post is about an amazing 15 year old American girl, Ava Lowery of Alabama, who is already both better informed and better intentioned than millions of her fellow countrymen and women -- including especially, the 'Counterfeit-Christian' crew.
The brave US teenager who made the video you're now invited [nay, urged] to watch -- and to listen to -- so obviously "sees it" exactly as we two oldies do. And as do many who read and/or post here, be it regularly or not.
That's one of the many reasons we're here today to endeavour to help this young lady spread her heartfelt message [as you could too,if you'd be so kind] and to try to open the eyes, minds and hearts of all those who [albeit sometimes unknowingly] also need some sort of 'help'.
Like Ava's video-link header says, right here: Peace Takes Courage.
Well, we'll most certainly second that.
Furthermore, we'll even furnish Ava with a footer .
Out of the mouths of babes ...
