March to Make a Difference

“I think everyone should be involved in the March (for Life) because it spreads the word about abortion,” freshman Travis Willson said.

Since January of 1974, groups of people young to old march together in the March for Life, a pro-life movement to educate people about the gift of life.

This year, 11 high school students are getting the opportunity to be a part of the March for Life. The students will be leaving on Jan. 19 at 4:30 p.m. with other schools in the area and travel by bus for 24 hours before arriving in Washington, D.C. The students will also get to visit different places, such as museums and shopping places.

“The place I most enjoy is the Arlington Cemetery,” junior Sheilah Lange said. “I also like watching the changing of the guard, knowing that many people have died fighting for our country.”

The March for Life 2016 Rally will start at noon on Jan. 22 on the grounds of the Washington Monument. Following the rally, the march will begin at 1 p.m. on Constitution Avenue between 15th and 17th street

    “My favorite part of the march is getting to stand up for lives that can’t stand for themselves,” junior Tabitha Stuhlstaz said.
