‘Call the Man’

 I am moved to tears every time I think of the tragedy that struck the Cudjoe family. How baby Jaedon Cudjoe must have suffered, and how much his grandfather is suffering now along with the other members of the family. My heart bleeds for them and I am forced to ask why such a thing happens. 

Why is it that in the midst of all the senseless murders and disregard for life through abortions an innocent baby who is loved so much dies in such a manner? Could it be that we need a reality check? Is it that we have become too self-absorbed, too focussed on ourselves to show care and concern for others?  

Baby Jaedon has died a martyr’s death and his death must not be in vain. This incident shows us how precious life is and how we must not take each other for granted. 

It teaches us that we must rally together and work for the good of everyone from the politicians to the homeless. We need to show love, care and concern each other every day for our lives and reclaim our beloved nation for God.

To put it in the words of a song by Celine Dion: “Call The Man, who deals in love beyond repair. He can heal the world of hearts in need of care.... Call The Man, He’s needed here.”
