TEAR TIME - Up Lifting Choral Moment - for Those Going Through or Have Supported a Loved One -With Cancer-
Here's an excellent example of a community coming together to support someone in need. Adriana Lopez, a teacher at PS22 in Staten Island, New York, was recently diagnosed with breast cancer. She has obviously been putting up one heck of a fight, because she inspired students in the chorus to dedicate the last song of their final practice of the school year to her. Their rendition of Martina McBride's "I'm Gonna Love You Through It" which was chosen as one of the anthems of Breast Cancer Awareness Month in October, left her in tears.
Thank you Commoncents

Da Vinci's Brilliance-From Helicopters to Babies in the Womb- Was Da Vinci Pro Life- - My Guess -YES!-Read My Post Below This for His Take on Flight- He Was a Visionary Genius
thank you LA Lutherans for Life
All the world celebrates Leonardo Da Vinci and his joyous ingenuity – proto helicopters, solar power, poetry and so much more. Fewer know of his years hacking up and sketching cadavers, gifts to medicine from the dead. But almost no one has paid much attention to one of his most remarkable contributions, as the world’s original gestational scientist.
Da Vinci’s studies of the embryonic child and expectant mother (1509-1512) were hard won and the first drawings of a child in the womb as far as we know. With help from a surgeon he pioneered dissection and medical illustration as we know them now. Sort of.
Da Vinci’s notes and observations of embryology were meticulously detailed and illustrated. His revelation on some aspects of fetal development were so highly advanced, it’s taken 500 years and the advent of CT and MRI scans for them to be verified. A sense of the beauty and mystery of life pervade his work, although it is done to advance sciences. This is something we have almost lost in a time of famished spirituality.More Here.
