Where I'll Be

This Monday I will be joining over 350,000 people in the 39th Annual March for Life in downtown Washington D.C.

Last year' March they was an estimated amount of 400,000 people:

It means sacrificing, time, sleep and comfort.

It means being outside in the freezing temperatures.

It means being a WITNESS. Being a VOICE for the over 40,000,000 babies that have been killed in the U.S. alone since abortion became legal in 1973.

And every year the number of marchers has grown.

Thank you to all my fellow marchers. This will make a difference. In 38 marches the number of marchers as gone from 20,000 to 400,000. And 2005 in San Francisco the Walk for Life began with just over 7,000 participents. This past year over 40,000 people participated in the Walk for Life.
That's almost half a million US citizens raising their voices for the unborn.

I can't describe the emotions that go on that day. And only those who have been able to participate in the March (or Walk) will understand. It is truly incredible to be able to participate in this amazing day.
