HSLDA: Two Stories - One Important, One Amazing

Two Stories: One Important, One Amazing

On Tuesday, two important things happened--one was significant, the
other was amazing.

On June 5, the Parental Rights Amendment was introduced into both
houses of Congress. In the Senate, Senator Jim DeMint is the prime
sponsor. It was introduced as SJRes42: . In the House, Representative
Trent Franks is the prime sponsor of HJRes110: .

We are very grateful to be fully underway to secure the passage of the

That same day an amazing thing happened. Our staff brought me a letter
from a 17 year old girl from Michigan--Hannah. Hannah wrote that ten
years ago, her father had heard me speak at a conference where I
encouraged dads to reward their children for reading the Bible every
day. I told how I had given my older children $100 if they would read
the Bible every day for a year without missing a single day.

Hannah told me that her dad had been doing that for the past 10 years.
And for ten years, Hannah had been saving her money.

After all this time, Hannah was led to send the entire $1000 she had
saved to support the work of She understood the
power of good parenting in her own life and wants to be sure that when
she is a parent she has the same rights that her parents have enjoyed.

I have to tell you that I was brought to tears when I heard Hannah's
story. It is one of the most amazing stories I have ever been
privileged to hear.

And it seems that it was no coincidence that her check was brought to
me on the very day that the PRA was introduced.

I feel prompted to ask a number of parents to match Hannah's gift: . Some of you can give $1000
like she did. Others can give $100 for the cause of parental rights.

Frankly, we have been running on fumes--and I feel
free to say this because I don't receive any salary or expenses from
this organization. We need to be in a strong position as we get ready
to launch this crucial phase of our campaign. Will you join Hannah in
supporting the work of today?
