Every day is a gift. All life is precious! I went to the store during the “senior” hour, and there was this young 30 year old in line and I overheard this conversation beginning with her first statement of “I did not know this was geriatric day!” With a loud laugh looking all around. An older woman behind her said softly, “The announcement was made that many grocery stores are recommending those over 60 who are in a high risk category to come get what they need during this first hour to help protect them against the virus. Younger healthy people can be carriers even if they do not get sick, and older ones and those who are already weaker for other reasons can die.” This younger person, very loudly then stated in an extremely disrespectful voice, “Well, I am a lawyer and that sure does sound like discrimination to me!” Then the cashier said to the younger person, “We will not turn anyone away. It’s okay you are here now.” And the one who began the conversation smiled a big smile and with a triumphant look took her receipt and said, “Well that is good to know!” The older woman said no more and the cashier was not real friendly to her at all. I recognized the reality that prayer is now happening like never before, everywhere, because I sure was praying for all the moms and dads and aunties and uncles and grandparents who will not be around this time next year….and for those 50 and under who will be! LORD HAVE MERCY….as we continue to contend for the babies in the womb in danger of being aborted, we must pray for the elderly in our land who seem to be the current group of people we must contend for with urgency!
