This is New York. Respect for life?

Only been 5 days since landing in New York and I think I could fill a book with thoughts and experiences.

In life, sometimes, there are things we can´t understand. In New York is the National September 11 Memorial park that honors the men, women and children who perished in the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 and February 29, 1993. It commemorates the lives lost. Thus, the names of the victims are inscribed in bronze parapets around the pools located in the space of the Twin Towers. In one of them I could read: "The name of a woman and her unborn child”. How nice! Remember us that with that death we lost two different people.
As we read in the brochure, the mission of this park is: may the lives remembered, the deeds recognized, and the spirit reawakened be eternal beacons, which reaffirm respect for life, strengthen our resolve to preserve freedom, and inspire an end the hatred, ignorance, and intolerance.

How right and contrast to what we observed every day. I would like to see as the laws of this country defend these as well as exposes it in the brochure and the actions thereof are directed to this end.

We could forget the faces of anguish for many women who walk-in without knowing what to do. They far from ignorance, would have clear that the most important thing is respect for life. Thus, in the office where I work we would not have to report and we could devote ourselves to provide the help that many need.
