Question: What was my favourite aspect of the All Ireland Rally for Life?
Answer: Not having to organise it!
How refreshing it was to turn up and see posters, banners, balloons, a stage & a sound system just appear, to watch a 'rally bus' turn up by itself and to see thousands of young people filling the square without having to spend months reminding them to be there.
'LET ME INTRODUCE YOU TO A BABY WHOSE LIFE YOUR JOY HELPED SAVE'
During Lent I was standing outside the abortion centre towards the end of our 40 Days for Life Campaign. A regular volunteer parked his car and came to join me. 'How many babies have been saved so far?' he asked. '9 that we know of' I replied, and was just about to add 'It's been a fantastic campaign' when he cut in with a disappointed voice 'Well I suppose that's better than nothing'.
