Diana and Anne meet with Rep. Dave Brat

The Annual March for Life in Washington DC was held this year on Friday, January 19th.

Diana Shores and Anne Fitzgerald from the Day of Tears traveled to Washington on Wednesday, January 17th, to staff a booth at the headquarters hotel and to meet with elected officials.

One of the highlights of the visit to Capitol Hill was a meeting with Congressman Dave Brat from Virginia.

Representative Brat gave Diana and Anne a warm and gracious welcome. He listened intently as Diana and Anne explained the goals of the Day of Tears and then offered some important actionable information.

As you might imagine, Diana and Anne were thrilled with the results of the meeting. We will now create a significant project which will have great national affect.

There will be cost to bring the work to completion. As the Lord provides, we could put your financial donations to good use. The donate button on the website is the easiest way to make a contribution.

Why January 22nd is the Day of Tears

January 22nd is the Day of Tears.

On January 22, 1973, seven Justices of the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a right guaranteed by the US Constitution.Baby boy posing

The Constitution was drafted in 1787 and ratified in 1789. The Bill of Rights was drafted in 1789 and ratified in 1791. During the drafting and ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, no one in the Constitutional Convention, no one in Congress, no one in the State legislatures, none of the Federalists and none of the Anti-Federalists asserted that the Constitution contained a right to abortion.

In the 182 years following the ratification of the Constitution and the Bill of Rights, no courts, no academics, no legislators and no legal scholars claimed that the Constitution granted the Supreme Court the authority to legalize abortion.

Then, on January 22, 1973, seven Supreme Court Justices declared that their political opinion on abortion was to be the law of the land. Those seven Justices amended the Constitution without a single vote from an elected official. It was a judicial coup d’état.

Since that grim day, 60 million innocents have lost their lives to abortion. And that is why January 22nd is called the Day of Tears.

The message of Day of Tears is, “January 22nd is the Day of Tears. Please lower your flag.” The organization seeks to name January 22, the day that the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a constitutional right, as a national day to mourn the unborn children who lost their lives to abortion.

Facebook “Likes” soar to 10,000

From Diana Shores, Director of Social Media

It is so amazing to the Day of Tears team that we have made it this far. Just two years ago, the Day of Tears was just a concept, a sentiment really.

It began with the questions, “Who mourns for the lost? Who is recognizing the gaping holes in our generations left by abortion? When will women, men, & their families, hurt by the choice of abortion, feel free to mourn their abortion and honor their loss? Who will lower the flag for them?”

We are here to embrace those who chose abortion with open arms that affirm life. We are here to lovingly tell them that all life is precious and we acknowledge that abortion has hurt them.

We are here to mourn the innocent who have perished as a result of the culture of abortion. We are here to cry out for a better way until there are tears no more. We are here to ask you to lower your flag on January 22nd in remembrance, for it was on that day in 1973 that the Supreme Court ruled that abortion was a newly discovered constitutional right.

Thank you for liking our posts, sharing our message, and supporting our efforts. In our first two years we managed to grow ourselves, and our message. We started out here in Virginia. Just activists from small towns seeking to make a difference.

This year, we were able to get our first resolution of acknowledgement of life passed by the Virginia General Assembly. And, we shall not stop here….

Which one should have been aborted?

“Which one of these children should have been aborted? The one born into poverty? The one conceived in rape? How about the single mother with other children?

None of them! Each life has value from conception. They need us. Our support, our love, and our time. Hope makes women turn away from abortion.”

This graphic or meme was designed and posted on the Day of Tears Facebook page by Diana Shores. Diana is the Day of Tears Director of Social Media and the meme is an example of Diana’s awesome ability to communicate using the Internet.

Are you a spectator or are you a doer?

Does your heart ache for the innocents who have perished from abortion? Do you long for an end to the suffering that abortion brings to mothers and their babies? Do you yearn for something you can do to end the scourge of the unborn?

If you answered yes to these questions, here is a recommendation for you to consider.

The Day of Tears team is looking for people to join in our effort to end abortion. We plan to do that by changing the present culture which sustains the practice of killing unborn children.

We have two specific goals. The first one is to name January 22nd the Day of Tears. That was the day in 1973 when the Supreme Court legalized abortion.

The naming of January 22nd as the Day of Tears will cause people to associate abortion with the incalculable suffering it brings to its victims. It will also cause people to mourn the millions who have perished and remember the mothers who forever regret their fateful decision.

The second goal is to encourage people to lower their flags on January 22nd. When Americans awaken on that day and go about their daily travels, they will see flags lowered in mourning and ask, Who died?

The answer to that question may cause some to reflect on the millions of children who never had a chance of life.

By joining the Day of Tears team, you can be part of the noble effort to change the culture to welcome life, and not destroy it. For more information on what you can do, send an email to us using the contact page on this website.

In the great struggles that have shaped the course of history, spectators have never influenced the outcome. It is only the doers who set the direction of nations.

Will you be a doer with us?

A letter from my heart

A letter from my Heart

From Diana Shores, Director of Social Media for the Day of Tears

I have always been pro-life. I was raised in a pro-life family. I grew up knowing that all life has value and that God’s creation should be preserved and not destroyed. As I’ve gotten older, the life message has become personal and precious to me.

As a mother, I’ve felt life beginning within. I’ve seen the tiny heartbeat on the monitor and listened to the gentle galloping sound on the Doppler. I’ve been scared a few times that my little one was less than perfect, but heard God’s gentle whisper that He makes all things glorious.

I’ve worked with those with severe physical impairments and disabilities. When I looked into their eyes and could see inside, I knew they too were God’s plan. I knew that they were unique, special, worthy of protection, and valued.

I’m blessed to have a young man in my life who is different. When I hear his loud laughter I am reminded time after time of the value of his life. I am reminded how loved he is by his family and how he completes their story. Had the doctors had their way with the pre-birth diagnosis he would be nothing more than another statistic. But God moved.

I know the struggles faced by a loved one who was date raped. Abortion was just legalized and that option was before her. She rejected it to give life knowing that in her small town it wouldn’t be easy. I know of her courage and her struggles.

I’ve heard story after story about how abortion hurts, but I’ve also witnessed the triumph of choosing life. If we could all just share our stories of hope, lend a hand to those who are hurting, hug that mom, reach out to that dad, and just love one another, then we can end this culture of death.

Abortion not only kills an innocent baby, but it kills something inside of all of us. To end this, we must begin by telling women the truth about abortion and exposing the industry’s corruption. We must recognize that all life has value. It begins with you.

What will you do this year? Will you volunteer at your pregnancy center? Host a baby shower at your church for a single mom? Mentor a scared new mom and dad? Write a letter to your elected officials asking them to pass a life-saving law? Give a financial donation to a pro-life group? Everyone can do something.

I will keep fighting, hoping, loving, and praying until there are tears no more.
