For a change of pace, here’s a wonderful story that I read about yesterday and wanted to share with all of you. Hopefully Valerie Gatto’s life path will be a true inspiration for millions of others across this land. And as far as inspiration goes, one would have to include her mother’s decision, which was passed onto her through her own mother’s advice. – Everything is intertwined, generational…which is of great importance, and sorely lacking in our country the past few decades!

Nevertheless, see what you think about her story, her life, and how far she’s succeeded. I don’t think there’s going to be any stopping this gal in the near future…no matter what her endeavors are.

Read this report:

March 3, 2014 ( – When the newly crowned Miss Pennsylvania, Valerie Gatto, was in third grade, she found out the difficult truth that she had been conceived when her mother was raped at knifepoint.

Gatto’s mother was only 19 years old when the attack occurred. Her assailant had plans to murder her as well, but says those plans were thwarted when a bright light from an unknown source appeared. This light gave Gatto’s mother the ability to get up and run away before he could do further harm to her. Gatto says, “I like to think of that light as my mother’s and (my) guardian angel.”

In a recent interview with the Pittsburgh Tribune Review, Gatto says her mother always told her, “I was her light.”

Soon after the attack, Gatto’s mother discovered she was pregnant. According to an interview with Gatto for CBS Pittsburgh, her mother never considered abortion.

She did have plans to put her daughter up for adoption, hoping she could be given a more stable life elsewhere. But, after Gatto was born, her grandmother reminded her daughter that God does not give us more than we can handle. She convinced Gatto’s mother to raise her little girl herself.

Thus, at 20 years of age, Gatto’s mother lay aside plans to attend law school in order to raise her daughter. Gatto grew up living with her mother and maternal grandparents in a stable, loving home. She says she never felt as though her mother regretted her decision to keep her.

Gatto was raised going to church each Sunday and, as a result, faith became an important part of her life. According the Gatto’s website, her mother was put in charge of the food pantry at their church, delivering food baskets for those in need. She would bring Gatto with her and this service driven life encouraged Valerie to volunteer in various capacities as well.

She became involved in projects such as clothing drives, giving gifts to children in hospital care, and Operation Dear Abby, which gives cards to U.S. military members stationed overseas. Gatto says she has learned to live her life “looking at how to turn a negative into a positive.”

Gatto went on to pursue higher education and graduated with honors from the University of Pittsburgh. Since then, she has continued serving in various capacities around her community such as helping at a local food bank and donating clothes to an organization that empowers women.

Additionally, her mother’s story of rape and survival has given her a deep desire to help other women learn how to protect themselves from sexual assault. “I hope to make a difference and shed a light on sexual assault and rape for young women,” Gatto says.

As she anticipates using her platform to inspire many with her life and story, Gatto firmly believes God has put her on this earth for a special reason. “I knew God put me here for a purpose, and he’s the reason my mother and I were saved,“ she says. “I want to do him proud and my family proud. If I did just sit there and think, ‘Why did this happen?’ or ‘Does my father know I exist?’ and be scared and let the fear of the unknown stop me, I wouldn’t be living my life. He put me here to do great things, and I’m not going to let that stop me.”


You can be sure feminazis everywhere have to be furious about this report…starting with NOW, Planned Parenthood factions with Cecile Richards leading the way, and NARAL groups on down the line…no doubt about that!

  1. Hi BT how have you been? I’m glad you posted this story, I read it yesterday too. This girls story goes against one of the excuses the pro abortion people use to kill the unborn. Too bad the MSM and baby murderers will try and keep her story quiet.

    • Howdy, howdy magnum…

      I’m fine…just taking a quick break in-between getting things at home for my other half to get home after a month of being gone.

      Anyway….your words put it in a nutshell for me regarding this subject. And yes, the msm has kept this story quiet…very, very quiet. Good thing we have algore’s amazing superhighway…eh?

      • I’m glad you’re doing good and your husband is coming home. The water finally warmed up enough to go fishing here so the white bass and crappie are keeping me pretty busy.

  2. I’m going to toss this in the mix too.

  3. An absolutely wonderful and heartwarming story. It does the heart good to hear about people like this.

    • Thanks LD…I’m glad someone else feels the same as I did today regarding this gal’s life.

      • I thought so much about it that I tried to share it on Free Republic. I think it deserves the attention. However, when I attributed it to Angry White Dude, I was informed Angry White Dude was not welcome on Free Republic. What’s up with that?

        • I don’t know. But Free Republic is a joke to me…has been for years. I got kicked off of there years and years ago when I was first starting to learn my way around the internet and the computer too. That site can stick it where the sun doesn’t shine as far as I’m concerned…but that’s just me.

          • I usually try to share my posts over there, helps to drive the traffic a bit. I do know some of the commenters over there are a tad bit on the rude side. Makes me wonder if they aren’t closet liberals, the way they comment with something that doesn’t even pertain to the post in question.

          • Rude is a nice way to put it…evidently things haven’t changed much.

            ‘Free Republic’ my a$$! It’s a Peyton Place clanfest when it comes to those that think they’re the be all and end all know-it-alls.

            Btw…I don’t blame you one iota for trying to bring traffic to your site, ya gotta do what ya gotta do…and truly, I’m wishing the best luck to you for the future. Your site is a good one in my humble opinion.

  4. One thing I have noticed on FR today, my posts are being held for review. I think they must have had problems with spammers and the rest of us are having to pay the penalty.

    I appreciate the kind words, Bigtimer. I just keep plugging along.

  5. Gee…talk about a ghost town around here today. – SPOOKY!

  6. Speaking of prolife…check out this feminazi attack!

    • So that fat ‘n ugly nazi specializes in “Pornography; Sex Work; Black Film, Popular Culture and Art; Feminist & Queer Theory; African American & African Diaspora Studies; Visual Archives; New Media; Ethnography; Oral History”.

      Anyone loading their shotguns yet?

  7. Great story. Will share.

    • Howdy rp…

      Thanks. Glad you care about this too. This gal and her life is something else via my viewfinder in life.

      Also, are you having better luck seeing things here now? – Just curious…and sure hope so. 😉

      • Greetings bigtimer,

        Yes, a sad and tragic beginning. God bless the mom.

        Also, regarding the site, yes, I actually read the text ‘click if you do not want to see these messages’. ‘Those’ messages went away. Thank you for asking 😉

        • rp…

          Thanks so much for the reply. – So glad things are working out better for you know when it comes to the site.

          And spot on about her mom…and grandmother too!

  8. Now there’s a Filly I can get behind!
