What a Picture Is Worth

One of the tiny victims of the Syrian gas attack is carried away

U.S. missile strikes disabled a Syrian airfield Thursday night. This action was in direct response to the Syrians having used chemicals to kill some of their own people, including small, innocent children. The U.S. has sent a clear message to Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad that such actions will not be tolerated.

Assad has committed atrocities against his own people for years. What was different this time? It was the pictures of dead children that were released and broadcast all over the world. These terrible images moved President Trump to take action. Trump said, “When you kill innocent children, innocent babies, babies, little babies with a chemical gas that is so lethal…that crosses many, many lines…”

Both Republicans and Democrats are praising the military action. Support is being voiced from all over the world.

I wonder what it will take for the world to unite against the atrocity of abortion? Maybe pictures of the carnage would cause people to have a change of heart.

“Rescue the weak and the needy; deliver them from the hand of the wicked.”—Psalm 82:4.
