In spite of forecasts of flooding and thunder storms, we went ahead with today's March for Life. It was obvious that pro-lifers want to give witness - six hundred showed up with their boots and umbrellas. We were honored to have many wonderful speakers including many students, Corrie Connor Morse sharing her abortion heartache, State Reps David DeCoste and Jim Lyons and Fr Matt Williams, who really revved up the crowd with their "Marching Orders" Buses came from across the state including a surprise bus from Milton. The March baby, Maura and her mother Jean, were especially welcome. Maura blew kisses to the audience and has fans for life. We were honored that Cardinal O'Malley braved the weather to inspire people with his message.
A good slosh, slosh time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone who came and to the great committee who worked so hard: Ed Nazzaro, Chair, Billy Donovan, David Franks, Ron Genco, Matt Hanafin, Danielle Olsen, Jack Rowe, Pat Stewart, and Fr. Matt Williams.
I certainly am looking forward to next year's March! Anne
