ZenTiger Recognizing the unborn

Front page news on 15 November 2011 was the tragic story of "Unborn baby, mum among road dead."

The story goes: "A 42 year old mother-to-be heading home from a Gin Wigmore concert was killed - along with her unborn child..."

Most of us instinctively know and understand this as a terrible tragedy that terminated the life of the mother-to-be and her unborn child.

I wasn't going to post on this story because it was obvious where my point was leading, and I was thinking this isn't really the right time. However, the talk back radio has been flooded with calls from listeners commenting on just how sad and tragic this story is, and that in itself is post worthy.

It is enough to say, and have people agree, that two lives were lost in that crash, not one. May her friends and family take some comfort in the fact that most of New Zealand has paused and reflected on this sad story, and our prayers and best wishes go with them.
