March for Life: The Next Generation

As I mentioned below, I was unable to get down to D.C. for the March for Life this year.  My nephew, Christopher, however, was there along with his classmates from Chaminade High School in Mineola, New York.   I had asked Chris if he could send me a few pictures for the blog as well as a few of his thoughts on this year's march.  His reflections just blow me away and give me such hope for the future of the pro life movement and the world.  Here's what he says:
 I know you asked me to send you a sort of synopsis of my trip so I have a few comments.  I thought that this year's March for Life was a huge success. What I found to be the most profound thing was the new generation of pro-life marchers who are beginning to take control of the right to life agenda.  Despite the cold weather throughout the march there was a sense of community and warmth amongst everyone.  The height of my experience in Washington was when everyone began to sing the Salve Regina as we trod up Capitol Hill, it felt as if we were calling for Mary's intercession upon us and all those scared and regretful mothers.  My experience was truly amazing this year and I am very excited to go again until our message reaches the hearts and ears of all.  
May God bless Chris, his classmates and teachers, and all those who endured the sub-freezing temperatures to provide a voice for those who cannot speak for themselves.

Here are a few of his great shots from the march:
