Andrea Bocelli’s Beautiful Testimony of Life
I want to tell you a little story. This is how the story goes, a young pregnant wife named Edi Bocelli had been hospitalized for an attack of appendicitis. The doctors had to apply ice onto her stomach, and when all the treatment had ended, they suggested that she abort her child. They explained that it was the very best solution because her baby would be born with some disability and the doctors were right. Her son was born with congenital glaucoma and blind by age 12. His name, Andrea Bocelli. That woman was my mother, and I am her child.
Maybe I'm partisan, but I can say, it was the right choice! And I hope my story can encourage many mothers that sometimes find themselves in difficult situations, in those moments when life seems so complicated, but want to save the life of their baby.
"Anyone who is a parent, anyone who knows the precious responsibility of being a mother or a father, will fully grasp the meaning of this piece. ‘Fall On Me’ is the first time I have duetted with my son Matteo Bocelli".
"a memorial and a name"
Yad Vashem is Israel’s memorial for their 6,000,000 Holocaust victims.
The blessing of children is one of God's most precious and highest honors. Nevertheless, we have sacrificed 60,000,000 of our own children. Every little child that we lost was worth saving. Their life was no less valuable or meaningful than Andrea's life or his son Matteo's life.
What memorial could we ever build for our over 60,000,000 Choice victims? Jesus said:
“it is not the will of your Father who is in Heaven that one of these little ones should perish.” Matthew 18:14
