A few years back, I was at the March For Life and I was really frustrated by the completely biased news coverage. So, I tried to buy one of the March for Life domain names. Well, today, the transaction was completed and I am now the owner of www.MarchForLife.net. Actually, it did not expect this at all. Life is full of surprises!
This is exciting for me, because it is an opportunity to create a record of undeniable facts about the massive size of the March For Life and the tremendous youthfulness of the pro-life movement. It's amazing every year to see the pictures of others when I cannot make it and to see the march itself when I can make it. Every religion (plus I absolutely love the Atheists For Life who are always at the march). Every skin color. More women than men, which just blows away the stereotype that its a bunch of men trying to control women. And, more young people than ever before.
Having 5 young boys, I am walking that fine line. Don't want to turn them off to something by being too pushy, you know. I brought my oldest son Billy about 4 years ago, and he didn't want to go to the march since then. I think it was mostly all the walking involved. So, I'm not always able to be at the march even though I wish I could be there.
My plan for the website. We'll I supposed I should pray about it, right? Originally, my idea was to create a way for people to submit photos, videos, links to blogs, news articles, and YouTube videos. A way to categorize by year and march (because, there is now more than one March For Life. They are all over the country). Ask me if I remembered to pray about this in a couple days...
