OVER 300,000 MARCH FOR LIFE IN WASHINGTONI promised myself that I would find out how many marched this past Thursday for the March For Life.
Well the Park Service and a private analyst both stated that over 300,000 marched in Washington at the 28th annual March for Life. What was even more astounding was that the media actually reported the size of the crowd as over 300,000.
The moos as i reported before was defiant and upbeat. The folks marching, whether young or old, were not willing to concede the field. Indeed, the sense I got from the crowd was that the masses of Pro-Lifers who participated were ready to return home, roll up their sleeves and continue the difficult though rewarding work of building up the movement.
Of course our own local press ignored the event for the most part. But we who have been active for any length of time just shake our heads and move on.
As the next few days pass, I will add to these thoughts and reflect on where we as a movement need to move, ands how were get there.
