It’s funny how a profound truth that you already “know” can just jump up on you when described in a different manner.

I was on the elliptical this morning, watching Fox News, when someone said, “Not in eight years.” Then it hit me.

She was referring, of course, to a presidential administration that embraces the annual March for Life, rather than one that recycles statements extolling “reproductive freedom,” as pro-abortion President Barack Obama did with monotonous regularity.

As I drove into our nation’s capital, there were already large contingents of pro-lifers everywhere. There were plenty of guys, young and old, but, as is always the case, far more gals, young and old.

When I walked in the NRLC door, I was swallowed up by a huge number of teenagers who had stopped by the office to say hello and refuel before the March which begins at noon on the Mall.

We’ll be posting off and on during the next five hours. If you couldn’t be here in person, you can watch on C-Span.
