Our parish youth group chartered a bus to take 36 teens and their chaperons to the March for Life in Washington DC. They stopped for Mass at the gorgeous St. Paul's Cathedral in Pittsburgh. They spent time in the Smithsonian, visited the monuments, and a Franciscan Monastery. They attended the vigil Mass at the Basilica and the youth rally and Mass before the march.
And they marched. For the babies. For the sanctity of life. The media ignores the march. But Washington cannot, (in spite of the stealth technology employed by pro-lifers.) The official attendance estimate is 500,000. For 39 years this march has been growing and the marchers getting younger. There are other marches for life around the country. Our young warriors will never forget this trip and will go on fighting till Roe is overturned and every baby has a chance at life and love.
Kevin J. was there with Christendom College who led the march. Alex and Monica were there with our youth group. I have been going through hundreds of wonderful pictures trying to chronicle this experience for them. I know it strengthened their faith and their resolve. And they had a very good time. :)
I do not have any pictures of Kevin, he is somewhere in the back of the Christendom crowd. Being a true Catholic gentleman, he ignored his mother's directive to push and shove his way to the front to get in the photo for blogging purposes.

Pray, fast and fight for the preborn! Love each other in Christian charity.
I gathered photos willy nilly from all over (mostly friends) and could not possibly reconstruct to give proper photo credits, my apologies.
