On Friday, Jan. 18, six buses left Orange County to make a pilgrimage to Washington, D.C., to joined with more than 300,000 others for the March for Life.

It was a beautiful day partly sunny with the temperature in the high 40's which is a welcomed change when you look back at the weather for the last few years. The speakers were terrific with Vice President and Mrs. Pence in person, President Trump on the giant screen.

Ben Shapiro joined spoke as well as other inspiring speakers.

It was a prayerful and peaceful march with pilgrims from as far away South Dakota, Michigan, Missouri, Kansas, Indiana, Texas, Illinois and most states in between attending.

The bus from Sacred Heart in Monroe and St. Anastasia in Harriman left Sacred Heart at 5 a.m. with 40 pilgrims aboard and returned at 10 p.m. It was great with the majority of pilgrims were young adults and children which was very encouraging for future of the pro life movement.

Let us not forget for what our forefathers fought the War of Independence: Freedom. This they wrote in Declaration of Independence that "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness."

The first right stated was the right to life.

We all pray for these rights be extended to the unborn as well as the born.

Please pray with us for the end of abortion.
