{#WorthRevisit} Marching for Life 2016

Last weekend, January 16, 2016, I attended the annual Love My Life Rally in Raleigh, NC with my teen daughter and other teens and adults from our parish.  

Each year this rally takes place the weekend before the annual March for Life in Washington, DC.  At the Love My Life Rally about 1300 teens and adults gather to hear music, listen to a speaker, have Mass with our Bishop and then take to the streets in downtown Raleigh to stand for life and be a voice for the unborn.  It's always a blessed day to see so many young people passionate about life and sacrificing part of their weekend to be a witness for this necessary and important message.

Here are a few photos of our day....

The weather in Raleigh last weekend wasn't too bad, but I hear this weekend in D.C. there is a major snow storm coming just in time for the March for Life. :(  I'm disappointed I'm not attending this year, but it's best I didn't travel into the predicted blizzard.  I pray for all those who will be traveling and our family will certainly continue to pray for pregnant women and for the end to abortion.

I've attended the March for Life in Washington, D.C. a few times (2011, 2012, 2015) and here are my blog posts from previous years in case you missed them or would like to read about what the March for Life was like from our personal experience....

I have a Pinterest Pro-Life board called "L.I.F.E. = Life Is For Everyone" that I created awhile ago, where I have been collecting pro-life posts.  Please check it out and repin away to help spread the message of life to all the world!

Keep marching on! We shall overcome someday!

Have a blessed and safe weekend!


Tracy - I really love this way of supporting the March for Life when you can't actually be 'marching'!! I've yet to be able to go - and this year our church's bus bailed cuz of the predicted snow, however I am going to share this on my FB and 'march' alongside you this year!!

Tracy, I meant to post happy that you could join us for Worth Revisiting! My son was to make his 1st pilgrimage to DC for the March to Life but made it in Boston instead. How important your voice and all those who joined in are- for those that have none! God Bless you!
