Marching today

It's the annual March for Life.
 Of course, Doc and the big girls are there.
It's their thing, they love to go. Ok, Marta loves to go because she gets to be one on one w/ dad.
 {all pics in this post are from last year...of course}
Hannah loves to go because she has the heart of a warrior and this is one of the causes that gets her going...so she goes and marches and adds her presence and her voice.
Plus she gets a weekend in DC with her BFF, Anna.

They are marching for life.
It's crazy cold, they are exhausted after staying up to the wee hours at the vigil....beautiful and exhilarating but exhausting.
 I want my kids to be courageous enough to stand up for what they believe, I want them to have the courage of their convictions. 


There are many ways to make a difference in this cold world; this march is a good one for life.  Every life  has value.  Always.
So my dear ones are out there....they are bundled up, they are marching and I'm proud of them.

My husband and 12 yr. old son are there as well. Interestingly, I never once heard of this enormous event in the 18 years I grew up in Washington State! Where is the media when 100s of thousands of people peacefully gather to give witness to the value of every human life no matter how young or diseased, or old, or handicapped?

Really love the thought of daughters marching with their dad. Hope they warmed up well, it is just bitterly cold.
