Recently I watched an old movie with Shirley Temple in it called The Little Princess. Temple was 11 when she starred in that movie. She played Sara Crew, a little girl who was left by her father in an exclusive seminary for girls, due to her father having to go to Africa with the army.

In America last weekend, a small plane went down in rural Kentucky, leaving four members of a family dead. Out of the wreckage came one lone survivor: the 7 year old daughter and the one member of the family who survived. The little girl was able to walk seven miles, knock on the door of a house and tell her story to the owner. Incredibly she also led rescue workers to the wreckage. She had only minor cuts and bruises and was later released from a hospital. It is an incredible story.

Recently, I watched a documentary about the 2014 Nobel Peace Prize winner, Kailash Satyarthi, from India. He shared the Nobel Prize money worth USD 1.1 million with Pakistan's Malala Yousufzai, only 17 years old. While we have seen a lot in the news about this amazing young lady, Malala Yousufzai, I had never heard of Kailash Satyarthi.

As I watched and read the news, it struck me that a lot of our national arguments are based on two little words: "my rights." Various articles were titled like this: "How to Flex Your Rights During a Police Encounter," "Your Civil Rights," "Gay Rights," "Abortion Rights," "Right to Life," and even "What You Need to Know About Your Rights at the Airport." And here's one that I thought was somewhat humorous: "You're Smoking Pot and My Rights."

If you’re American, you’ve almost certainly recited the “Pledge of Allegiance” sometime during your lifetime. For me as a child, it was a requirement at the beginning of each and every school day. The last three words in the Pledge are justice for all. Those words really stood out to me recently. I want to ask: Is there “justice for all?” Is there justice for you?

What Happens After Death?

Life is precious to us. We don't want to die. But what really happens to us after death? Scientists, philosophers and even theologians don't agree. Where can we go for answers? Shouldn't we seek them from the Creator of life?
