If You Build It, Then...

Pro-Lifers will come! Every year (thanks to Nellie Gray) for the past 40 years, hundreds of thousands of pro-life witnesses have marched on Constitution Avenue in Washington, D.C. near the Jan. 22 anniversary of Roe v. Wade. This was my third trip, and the third time it has snowed during my trip, but the first time it was snowing and blowing DURING the actual March. Following our family tradition, this was the year that Polar Bear and Winger went along with me! We joined the 650,000 people who were not on NBC, ABC, CBS, nor in The New York Times. But our voices were heard by our Congressman, by EWTN, by Fox News, and by the angels. We went to the steps of the Supreme Court and prayed for all victims hurt by this social tragedy.

Plus we crammed as much sight-seeing
as we could into three days: Declaration of Independence, buffalo pot roast at the Indian Museum, "David" at the National Gallery of Art, Twins Jazz Club, Youth Symphony at the Kennedy Center, monuments at night, Ford's Theatre, Air and Space simulator ride, Chinatown, Portrait Gallery with Benjamin Franklin, Library of Congress, White House, Willard Hotel, We the Pizza, First Ladies Gowns, and.... Starbucks (that great cultural equilizer).
