Ammendment 48 - Colorardo Ballot

This is a video of Joel giving a speech for his speech class in college. I wanted to share it because it covers a VERY important topic that will face Colorado Voters in November. Ammendment 48 if passed, will define person from the moment of fertilization - meaning they will have rights! This is HUGE... I have pasted the wording as on the ballot below. If you live in Colorado - PLEASE vote YES on 48. If you don't live in Colorado - please pray for this important initive that will be on our ballot.

Amendment Question #48:“Shall there be an amendment to the Colorado Constitution defining the term “person” to include any human being from the moment of fertilization as “person” is used in those provisions of the Colorado Constitution relating to inalienable rights, equality of justice, and due process of law?”

The language proposed to be changed in the code is:
Be it Enacted by the People of the State of Colorado:
SECTION 1. Article II of the Constitution of the State of Colorado is amended BY THE ADDITION OF A NEW SECTION to read:
Section 31. Person defined. As used in sections 3, 6 and 25 of Article II of the State constitution, the terms “person” or “persons” shall include any human being from the moment of fertilization.

Been TOO LONG!!!

Okay so the time has just gone by so quickly!!! I am sorry I haven't blogged in awhile, just crazy.

So let's see in the past month, Joel has had 7 teeth pulled, we have had a fundraising dinner at church, the kids have all been doing well in school, we went to Elitchs in Denver and well work is work. I think that is everything - is that enough for one month?

Joel is also driving a bus for the school this year so back to REALLY early mornings for him! I am doing well - sort of looking for a new job but nothing so far so I have to trust that the Lord has me where I am for now. I just would like to be here in Bayfield and/or making a little more money so that we can get out of debt. I have applied for two jobs this week - one here and one more money but in Durango, who knows what will happen with that!

Oh and we had someone hack our computer so we had to clear our hard drive so I lost all my favorites so if you have a blog - e-mail me the link so I can reset it.

Well that is all for now - no new pictures yet BUT we did replace our camera and I will post some pictures of the elitches trip soon as well as the women's retreat that I am going to this weekend.

Okay - let me know what's happening - got get kids ready for school!
