I was privileged to be able to fly







I was privileged to be able to fly down to San Francisco (thank you Alaska Airlines mileage program) for the 8th annual Walk for Life West Coast.

The weather was absolutely fantastic - I lived in San Francisco for seven years in the 80's and never recall such gorgeous weather - thank you Lord!

There were between 40 and 50 THOUSAND of us who walked for LIFE! We walked from the Embarcadero (Justin Hermann Plaza) to the Marina Green, a two and a half mile walk...except for the end, which was a HIKE up and over a hill.

We were met, at the beginning of the walk, by protesters, who had bull horns and who yelled and screamed at us. They told us that we lied - that we did not care if women die...what a crock! I guess they do not understand that baby girls are being murdered by abortions ... and that women are hurt by abortions, the risks that the procedure has and sometimes, their abortions end in their own deaths...

We had people making obscene gestures to us - people harassing us ... and we kept marching. The protesters probably numbered one hundred or one hundred and fifty - it was hard to tell because we kept walking and I don't know how many marched along side of us -

It was interesting to see that these protesters, some of whom I photographed, did not walk the whole walk with us - they were only interested in protesting our right (and theirs) to assembly peacefully and to voice our desire to stop the holocaust of abortion, when the media was around.

The media ... ugh! I watched ABC local news that night and the report was that the marchers (us) were only 2,000 strong and we walked a mile. I know that my legs said that we walked the two and a half miles at a snails pace as there were so many of us...

I have lost so much respect for the news reporting in this country - they either ignore 100 thousand feet, walking for LIFE, or they misreport the walk altogether.

Liars, liars .. the lot of them.

Phoenix - thank you for your words of encouragement. I pray to see an end to abortion. I am grateful to God that your mother was not successful in terminating your life prematurely.

I pray that your mother has been able to reconcile her thoughts and actions of that wrong thinking. God bless
