Did we learn anything about Sarah Palin from her P-MAIL

All comedy aside, there was revealed in one email, a side of Palin that the liberal media probably won't make it's readers aware of.
Sarah Palin imagined God talking to her in a deeply touching email she wrote two weeks before her fifth child, Trig, was born with Down's Syndrome, it was revealed today.
The poignant message to family and friends, included in 25,000 pages of her private emails made public on Friday, may alter the way the former Governor of Alaska is viewed by the American public.
In April 2008, two weeks before Trig was born with Down's Syndrome, Mrs Palin sent the email to her friends and family from her official government account.
The full story is HERE.

The following is the full text from Palin's email:

To the Sisters, Brother, Grandparents, Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and Friends of Trig Paxson Van Palin (or whatever you end up naming him!):

I am blessing you with this surprise baby because I only want the best for you. I've heard your prayers that this baby will be happy and healthy, and I've answered them because Ionly want the best for you!

I heard your heart when you hinted that another boy would fit best in the Palin family, to round it out and complete that starting five line-up. Though another girl would be so nice, you didn't think you could ask for what you REALLY wanted, but I knew, so I gave you a boy because I only want the best for you!

Then, I put the idea in your hearts that his name should be "Trig", because it's so fitting, with two Norse meanings: "True" and "Brave Victory". You also have a Bristol Bay relative with that name, so I knew it would be best for you!

Then, I let Trig's mom have an exceptionally comfortable pregnancy so she could enjoy every minute of it, and I even seemed to rush it along so she could wait until near the end to surprise you with the news - that way Piper wouldn't have so long to wait and count down so many days - just like Christmastime when you have to wait, impatiently, for that special day to finally open your gift? (Or the way the Palins look forward to birthday celebrations that go on for three, four days... you all really like cake .) I know you, I knew you'd be better off with just a short time to wait!

Then, finally, I let Trig's mom and dad find out before he was born that this little boy will truly be a GIFT. They were told in early tests that Trig may provide more challenges, and more joy, than what they ever may have imagined or ever asked for. At first the news seemed unreal and sad and confusing. But I gave Trig' s mom and dad lots of time to think about it because they needed lots of time to understand that everything will be OK, in fact, everything will be great, because I only want the best for you!

I've given Trig's mom and dad peace and joy as they wait to meet their new son. I gave them a happy anticipation because they asked me for that. I'll give all of you the same happy anticipation and strength to deal with Trig's challenges, but I won't impose on you...

I just need to know you want to receive my offer to be with all of you and help you everyday to make Trig's life a great one.

This new person in your life can help everyone put things in perspective and bind us together and get everyone focused on what really matters . The baby will expand your world and let you see and feel things you haven't experienced yet. He'll show you what "true, brave victory" really means as those who love him will think less about self and focus less on what the world tells you is "normal" or "perfect". You will grow and be blessed with greater understanding that will be born along with Trig.

Trig will be his dad's little buddy and he'll wear Carhartts while he learns to tinker in the garage. He'll love to be read to, he'll want to play goalie, and he'll steal his mom's heart just like Track, Bristol, Willow and Piper did. And Trig will be the cuddly, innocent, mischievous, dependent little brother that his siblings have been waiting for in fact Trig will - in some diagnostic ways - always be a mischievous, dependent little brother, because I created him a bit different than a lot of babies born into this world today.

Every child is created special, with awesome purpose and amazing potential. Children are the most precious and promising ingredient in this mixed up world you live in down there on earth. Trig is no different, except he has one extra chromosome. Doctors call it "Down's Syndrome", and Downs kids have challenges, but can bring you much delight and more love than you can ever imagine! Just wait and see, let me prove this, because I only want the best for you!

Some of the rest of the world may not want him, but take comfort in that because the world will not compete for him. Take care of him and he will always be yours!

Trig's mom and dad don't want people to focus on the baby's extra chromosome. They're human, so they haven't known how to explain this to people who are so caring and are interested in this new little Alaskan. Sarah and Todd want people to share in the joy of this gift I'm giving to the Palin family, and the greater Alaska family. Many people won't understand... and I understand that. Some will think Trig should not be allowed to be born because they fear a Downs child won't be considered "perfect" in your world. (But tell me, what do you earthlings consider "perfect" or even "normal" anyway? Have you peeked down any grocery store isle, or school hallway, or into your office lunchroom lately? Or considered the odd celebrities you celebrate as "perfect" on t.v.? Have you noticed I make `em all shapes and sizes? Believe me ,, there is no "perfect"!)

Many people will express sympathy, but you don't want or need that, because Trig will be a joy. You will have to trust me on this.

I know it will take time to grasp this and come to accept that I only want the best for you, and I only give my best. Remember though: "My ways are not your ways, my thoughts are not your thoughts... for as the heavens are higher than the earth, my ways are higher than yours!"

I wrote that all down for you in the Good Book ! Look it up! You claim that you believe me - now it's time to live out that belief!

Please look to me as this new challenge and chapter of life unfolds in front of you. I promise to equip you. I won't give you anything you can't handle. I am answering your prayers. Trig can't wait to meet you. I'm giving you ONLY THE BEST!


Trig's Creator , Your Heavenly Father

Beautiful. I hope this will encourage certain people to keep certain strange opinions to themselves.

You mean like how she knew the baby was premature a few weeks before she 'delivered'?

GetReal, time to let it go. If you are going to keep it alive, then you force me to defend myself. Enough of the snark.

I looked at a picture and believed what I saw. Then I chose not to believe certain 'facts' that didn't make any sense.

It's not strange at all. But the willing suspension of disbelief is.

Martha, GetReal did not mention you by name. You chose to bite so to speak.

To be fair to the anti-Palin crowd, not all of them are hateful Trig truthers, but a certain portion of them have issues. I respect people like Get Real even despite not agreeing with him on Mrs. Palin. He thinks what he thinks without having to trash her and without attacking her family members. one does not have to like the Palin family (although I admit I do after reading Mrs. palin's book,) but bringing Mrs. Palin's family into the mix without discussing her ideology does not give the anti-Palinite credibility on the subject. Fortunately, there are people like Get Real who can be against Mrs. Palin without being Anti-Palin per se.

Yes, OJ, I did bite. But for weeks now we've seen these little snarky comments about Ellie and me. So forgive me for responding.

BTW - I have not changed my opinion one iota.

I heard rumors of this letter in the past, but I never read the whole thing.

I think it shows strength in character on Palin's part, that she was will ing to happily accept God's will, even when it is a hard thing to do.

There are many spiritual moments available to people when we are very close to what the members of my Church call a "veil" between this life and the next. The "veil" is usually thinnest before birth and close to death, although it can be thin at others times, as well. Mentally handicapped people live closer to this veil than regular people do, so I don't find this e-mail strange or odd. I think it is lovely that the Palins welcomed the birth of their special son in this way. I know that handicapped people are a special gift from God to those who are willing to accept them.

That being said, I do think we should do everything in our power to make sure all babies have as sound and perfect a body as possible. These methods should not include abortion. I was talking about March of Dimes-like research and prevention.
