The photo spread was awesome! My favorite is of the little girl in the pink hat on her mom’s shoulders holding the sign.
Looking for you was like looking for Waldo! I didn’t find you…are you in any of the pics and I just didn’t see you?
How was it? I’m sure it was a great experience. I was really looking forward to possibly taking some of the youth this year, but God had a different plan for me!!
We had a very large sign and all four of us we were loosely “attached” to a big oak tree that was situated at the very start of the march, staying put until all of the other marchers had stepped off. Only then did we make our way over to the Supreme Court.
I think Barbara the “photo lady” was all through by then.
My friend David S. and his family crafted the sign. It was about 5 feet by 10 feet in size. Once assembled it tended to blow around, so it was a handful for three or four people. Great sign, though!
An interesting march. Very well attended, where a number of specific needs of the Pro-Life movement became painfully apparent, mainly due to the new and overtly hostile political climate towards life these days, in Washington.
I removed my “Ask Me About God” button and infiltrated the little pro-death demonstration team that Planned Parenthood sponsors near the end of the march, each year.
Making small talk and asking questions, it quickly became clear that these guys have no regard for anything except themselves.
They are really depraved. Purely political. Blood means nothing to them, nor does the wholesale death and destruction of innocents. No humanity at all. No regard for God, and nothing but scorn for the Church.
The “older” women (those over 30 or so) all had rather dark mustaches! These were the “handlers”. A mustache must be some sort of a “secret” badge of rank.
The rest (all 20 of them) were young people … paid demonstrators from local colleges … and they knew little about what they were doing, or why.
They seemed to hate all things male (unless the “male” happened to be homosexual) and they just want to do what they want to do, without any interference from anyone.
All the more reason to repeal Roe vs.Wade, and to protect society from senseless death and destruction at the hands of these wanton killers.
The Cult of Obama will not survive the Pro-Life movement. These guys should surrender, before their decrepit position on this issue leads to their own destruction.
The Pharaoh of Exodus comes to mind, as do the Nazis, along with the Antichrist of the Book of Revelation.
If Obama turns out to be true to his word on abortion, I predict the current economic problems he’s facing will seem like “a walk in the park” before it’s all over.
Look for a dogmatic, “Ex Cathedra” statement from the Pope on abortion, in the near future. It’s certainly about time!
