And why should we lower our flags January 22nd?
10 July 2021
Day of Tears Incorporated is a pro-life organization with two goals that, if accomplished, will alter how our country views abortion.
The first of these goals is to make January 22nd, the anniversary of Roe Versus Wade, a day of remembrance titled the Day of Tears. This is in memory of the millions of children whose lives were taken by “doctors” in a “women’s health clinic,” or the ones who were killed through an at-home pill. Day of Tears wishes to make a national day of mourning, similar to how the country has Memorial Day.
The second goal is to have everyone lower their flags to half-staff on January 22. This is so important because it would honor the lives lost to abortion, similar to how we honor lives lost to shootings or the recent coronavirus. Secondly, a visibly lowered flag will spark conversation.
Conversation is essential to keep the pro-life movement moving forward. There are videos done by Live Action (https://www.instagram.com/tv/CRHFTkzr2KE/?utm_medium=copy_link) and Charlie Kirk (https://youtu.be/tEDgpJ8GExM) that show how just talking to someone or showing them what an abortion is can change minds. If someone sees a flag lowered, they will wonder why. Be someone who spreads awareness of this day and encourages people to lower their flags.
Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, and Louisiana have passed the Day of Tears Resolution. If you want to help the pro-life movement in a simple way, write to your state’s congressmen/congresswomen and senators, asking them to work towards a national day of remembrance.
