Everest Students Share Experience at the Annual March for Life in Washington DC
On January 22nd Everest students participated in the 37th , which is a demonstration that helps spread the Pro-life message to Washington and throughout the Nation. The students who attended had a very positive experience, check out what they had to say about it:
“What I have experienced…is how much unborn babies are loved by all the people who were there. I felt like the people around me were not strangers, but friends. I realize how important life is and from now on I will cherish that gift and pray for the mothers who denied their child this wonderful gift. I do believe that with enough prayers we can change this world. Saving one child at a time.” -Shannon DiSalle, 8th grade
“This was my first time going to the March for Life. It was an awesome and faith filled experience! I am going to come back every year now. The thing that struck me the most was the fact that I am a part of a big movement that fights for the rights of the unborn. I also had a great time with the Senator’s Chief of Staff. He is a great example and he is an amazing man. I am so blessed to be on this wonderful experience.” -Kersten Engle, 8th grade
“The thing that struck me most was the sheer number of people who were there. It is really nice to know that there are people who are willing to take a stand. I am happy I was able to be a part of it.” –Ben Bates, 9th grade“When I look around at the immense number of people there, testifying against abortion and YET it is still legal, I really wonder. It makes me realize how many people disagree with abortion and the government policies while the world and the media tries to make us feel so alone.” -Maura Wilson, 9th grade
Thank you to the parents who chaperoned, the students couldn’t have had this wonderful experience without you!
