This is "Who" we will be marching for at March for Life

In the bottom left hand corner the text reads "2008 "March for Life", Washington, D.C., Estimated 400, 000 - 500, 000 in attendance

Today is the 38th anniversary of the Roe vs. Wade Supreme Court decision  , which paved the way for legalized abortion in the U.S.   To voice opposition to abortion, thousands of people will come together from all walks of life, all ages, all religions, all races to march prayerfully and peacefully in front of our nation's capitol to defend life and uphold the dignity of life in all its stages. 

My family will be participating for the first time in this March for Life in Washington, D.C. on Monday, January 24, 2011.  If it's anything like in years past, there will be an endless sea of people marching for life, but our media will not talk much about this annual event. I remember last year I looked to see if our local and national news stations had a story on the march and I didn't see one.  What a shame! I look forward to sharing our experience sometime next week on my blog here.  Here is a beautiful video about "Who" we are marching for...

Abortion is so ugly. :( It is comforting to look forward to a time when abortion will be done away with. (Revelation 21:3,4; Psalm 37:11,29)

Oh, good for you, Tracy! I think FOX News covers it, but I am not 100% sure about that. I may be thinking of coverage on EWTN. God bless you and your family... prayers for safe travel! +JMJ+

I will be praying for a safe trip and good weather for you and your family. God bless you Tracy! I voted for you.

HI Tracy have a safe trip and stay warm I heard it is cold there. I tried to watch the video but it wouldn't download will try later today as it may be a problem on my end, we have slow services some day:) Voted for you

I wish I'd read this post sooner! Nine of my students and a family from my church (John and Heidi Wolfe) are hopping on a bus in a few hours to join this march. But what are the chances you'd meet up? Hope it's a great experience for you and your kids!
