When asked why they marched, student responses were numerous and varied:
"We're here to protect the human dignity of all persons from conception to natural death."
"Every life matters, and we want to spread the word."
"I'm here for the respect of fatherhood."
"We want to stand up for the most vulnerable citizens in our society!"
"I just really want our nation to hear our voices and know that it's an important issue that should be discussed."
"I'm here in the celebration of life"
"This is the land of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness, but how can you do any of that if you can't have the right to live your own life?"
We would like to thank Jen Gallic, the coordinator of this year's March, as well as the rest of the March team: Megan Ball, Noreen Fischer, and Will Harris. If you are interested in helping to plan next year's March, please contact Jen at email@example.com.
