Can't Go

We wanted to go to the rally at the Capital today. There's a service at the cathedral every year then a march down to the capital. It's so uplifting and nice. It's doubly great during the week because the legislators come out and speak. Mari woke up with a croupy cough (been going around here), and my stomach isn't so great so it looks like we'll have to miss it this year. I just heard this on the radio (100.3 ktlk):

An SUV crashes into Planned Parenthood Offices in St.Paul
(St. Paul-) Police are at the Planned Parenthood offices on Ford Parkway in St. Paul, where an S-U-V crashed into the building just minutes ago. Planned Parenthood tells K-TALK this was no accident, that they were clearly targeted. We're still waiting official confirmation from St. Paul Police. No one was hurt. This is the anniversary of the Roe V. Wade decision that legalized abortion. A rally by thousands opposed to abortion is scheduled for today at the state capitol in St. Paul.

(KTLK News)

Horrible. What a phenomenally BAD idea. The whole movement is about LIFE. I somehow don't think that any right-minded person would imagine inflicting bodily harm on anyone in pursuit of...SAVING AND PROTECTING LIFE!!! I imagine it was a very desperate person but more facts will come out soon. Really, the news just broke minutes ago so I don't know the whole story. I'm glad nobody got hurt (maybe the only thing hurt would be the reputation of the millions of very wonderful, peaceful protesters that get out there EVERY DAY to pray and protest the slaughter of innocents.).

I will pray that they have a good day at the protest.
