This was the first year I got to attend the annual March for Life in Olympia, and I hope it is the first of many more to come! It was so encouraging to see so many people take a stand against abortion and for women! I drove up with Josh and Susie. It was even nicer to be there with friends!
Then we lined up and started to march towards the steps of the capitol…
We opened in prayer (a violin solo of “Our Father”) and then heard from several of our state’s pro-life legislators, including two democrats. One of the last speakers was a representative from Tacoma (I think?) who had an awesome testimony of how he came to be pro-life just last year before the vote on the abortion mandate and how God cured him of cancer! It was a fantastic reminder to be praying for those in our government!
Afterwards, people from each legislative district went to their representatives’ offices to tell them that we were there for the March for Life. Our group also stopped and prayed for our three representatives. Awesome!
We learned a lot for next year: don’t pay for so much parking, bring notecards to leave with the reps, wear super comfortable shoes, have red roses, make our own signs and come with a van full of people!
