I first learned of Nightfever just a few months ago from my good friend, Fr. Anthony Azuwike, a young priest from Nigeria, currently stationed at the church I attend in New York. Fr. Anthony participated in Night Fever in England while a law student there. I was intrigued by this simple, beautiful gesture of inviting people of all faiths and backgrounds to share the common experience of lighting a candle and spending a little peaceful time with God. The idea of Nightfever propelled me to start the VCPC "Light a Candle" virtual chapel as a way for our members, from different faiths, countries and time zones, to come together in a common prayer experience.
The other day, I walked into St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City and saw a flyer like the one you see above. Remembering that "Coincidences are God's way of remaining anonymous," I had no doubt that I was meant to be at St. Pat's and find that flyer so that I could participate in my first Nightfever.
As I mentioned in my previous post, I have met some amazing, intelligent, strong and caring women who are not afraid to speak up and take a stand when it comes to the health of children -- their own and others. Many are mothers of vaccine injured children -- children with compromised immunity, mitochrondrial disorders, autism spectrum disorders -- and many are mothers whose precious children died soon after receiving vaccines. The cause of death for many of these children was SIDS, but the mothers do not agree. Others, like me, are the fortunate ones who questioned vaccine safety and the ever increasing vaccine schedule even though we had not experienced a vaccine injury. As a result of independent research, we made alternative vaccine decisions which may have saved our children from becoming another vaccine victim.
As if the pain of losing a child or having a child with autism and chronic health challenges isn't heartbreaking enough, many of these mothers carry with them a tremendous sense of guilt because they, not knowing that vaccines could cause harm, trusted their doctors and permitted their child to be vaccinated. They often share how they just wish someone had told them about the dangers before they had their child vaccinated.
The following post was written by VCPC member Nancy Babcock, who is passionate in her mission to educate others about the dangers of vaccines. Please read and share. You may just save a child from vaccine injury or death and a mother from heartbreak.
In the last few months, thanks to the magic of the internet, I have "met" several amazing women and a few men from all over the world who research and share information about vaccines to create awareness that vaccines can and do cause harm. They do not receive financial compensation for their efforts; and often incur expense. This work is done out of love and a passion to help parents make informed choices and put an end to the senseless tragedies that many families have experienced.
