I tell my kids on a regular basis that people are more important than things. I tell them this, because I believe it is true. Like most true...

As a Former Fetus . . .
Fits me to a T
My life in T-Shirts
It's been a while since I posted about about some of the t-shirts I've worn that best speak to who I am/was/will be.
Today's shirts goes back more than 20 years to my college daze.
I used to frequent our local Christian book store and buy lots of cassettes and c.d.s as well as books. He had a pretty good t-shirt selection. Most Christian T-shirts at the time were parodies of popular secular t-shirts. Those were so not me. So I generally stuck with Christian Music shirts or the occasional bible verse shirt. Until one day I met the shirt that really spoke my mind. It said as a former fetus I oppose abortion. This was written inside a picture of a fetus's foot print. On the back it had several foot prints in different stages of life.
I loved that shirt and wore it as often as I could.
Of all the times I ever wore that shirt, only one time did someone say it offended them. It was never my intention to offend, just to express my opinion. I asked that person if any part of the shirt was untrue? Technically, I formerly was a fetus. Truthfully, I do oppose abortion. Since aborted fetuses never gain the opportunity to weigh in on the abortion debate, as a former fetus I felt the need to say I liked staying around.
Not sure what ever became of the shirt. Some twenty years later, I am sure I've outgrown it. I just haven't outgrown the sentiment.
