Just a quick report on our 45th Annual Bus Trip to the Washington, DC March for Life:
The bus trip was completely uneventful, just the way we like it! We arrived at our Metro stop, in Arlington this year, literally in record time and before the crack of dawn. From there, it was just a hop, skip, and a jump over the "Orange Line" to the National Mall.
This year, we chose a new access point to the DC Metro system, East Falls Church Metro Station. This eliminated the very long walks we were forced to take in recent years from where we were required to park our buses at RFK Stadium.
The weather was perfect, the best weather in at least several decades, with clear, deep-blue skies and temperatures around the 50-degree mark.
Those who attended the Rally on the National Mall just before the March heard wonderful speeches from, among others, President Trump, Vice-president Pence, Speaker of the House Bob Boehner, and pro-life champion of the House of Representatives Congressman Chris Smith.
In addition to being thankful to God for the wonderful weather and our safe travels, we are very thankful to all the groups who helped keep our bus trip participation high: Our Lady of the Lake Church, Federated Church, Mercyhurst Lakers for Life, and Gannon Students for Life. Indeed, we are thankful for every last person on our roster.
We also want to thank St. George Church and St. George School for once again allowing us to use the school / church lobby as a place to check-in and gather before boarding our buses. And we thank all of the wonderful, generous sponsors who contributed financially to make it possible for so many people on tight budgets to travel to DC and be a part of the biggest pro-life event in the world.
We took a lot of pictures! Please check out our photo albums by
