Many horror stories emerged from the countries of Eastern Europe as their Communist dictator¬ships were overthrown. None surpasses the cruelty of former Romanian dic¬tator, Nicolae Ceausescu’s Home for the Deficient and Unsalvagcable.

By Ceausescu’s order, children throughout Romania who were found to have some mental or physical deformity were sent to this home. Any child judged by the state to be less than perfect was taken from his parents and sent to this home to die so that valuable resources would not be "wasted" upon him. No ugliness or imperfection was tolerated.

How thankful we can be that God did not use such a standard with His love and grace. If he had, then none of us could ever know His love. No, He chose to love us all, despite our imperfections.
