NRL Convention: Old friends
This was one of the best NRL Conventions!Constant themes:we must hold the U S House, elect 60 Senators, take back the Presidency, and then repeal Obamacare.I'll be telling you more about implementation of Obamacare that is so bad we never could have imagined when we started fighting it two years ago!
The Convention concluded with a Banquet that featured Michael Clancy.You'll remember him at our 2010 Assembly for Life.The picture of Baby Samuel, who is now 11 years old, will never cease to amaze and inspire, as will Michael's beautiful story.The last day was kicked off by the Schindler family.They have done such a wonderful job in protecting vulnerable patients - patients who had been denied care and are now alive and healthy because of their efforts.Suzanne Vitadamo, who spoke at our Dinner right after Terry's death, her brother Bobby Schindler, and their mother were all there.
A new movie, Doonby, was premiered.It features Norma McCorvey and stars Jennifer O'Neil, who spoke at our Mothers' Day Dinner. Burke Balch continues to be THE national expert on health care - he has developed his research even further than that he presented to us two years ago. Wanda Franz who spoke last October, David Franks, Chairman of the MCFL Board, and his wife, Angela, all presented at breakout sessions.Fr. Frank Pavone was very enthusiastic about his recent visit to Hingham, and many other presenters told me they would love to come to Massachusetts to speak.
There are some more exciting things from the Convention.I look forward to sharing them with you!Anne
