The gift of suffering

By Kianna Owen

“Imagine, if you will, a gift … picture it in your mind. It's not too big—about the size of a golf ball.”

In three brilliant minutes in front of the TED crowd, Stacey Kramer captivated her audience with the description of a small gift. She claimed it would drastically improve lives, strengthen relationships, and make one feel loved. She continued on, revealing the many benefits of this tiny present. While I watched, I became eager to find out where I could get one. Then she revealed that underneath the packaging, the gift was not so pretty.

It was a brain tumor.

What motivated you to join the pro-life movement? What continues to motivate you?

There were a lot of things that motivated me to join the pro-life movement.

It all started when my grade eight French teacher asked me to join the school Reverence for Life Club. Not completely certain of what I was getting into, I agreed. I began to participate in different pro-life activities such as the March for Life in Victoria, the vow of silence, Life Chain, and many more.
