Our son and I are now home from today’s March for Life. As with the last two years, it was a joy-filled, sorrowful day. Mostly, as with the last two years, I was struck by the huge numbers of children, teens, and college students in attendance. And our son ate up the Youth Mass and Youth Rally at the Verizon Center, energized by the homily from Fr. Mark Ivany and sustained by the Eucharist.
Thousands upon thousands of people were there–making up the only group of protesters ever to descend on Washington to act against their own self-interest (as P.J. O’Rourke once said). Folks, we’re going to win this war. I don’t know when, but it’s going to happen. The culture of death is doing exactly what you’d expect–dying.
