Belated Christmas wishes in February
I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas break! Yes, I do say “Christmas break” rather than “winter break” because that is the reason for the break; the reason why we have always had our school semesters designed to break around the month of December. During this time, we acknowledge if not praise the powerful and historical story of a baby born of one simple young woman. A woman who encountered very difficult circumstances, but at the same time trusted in God’s providence … and then gave birth to a King who would redeem all mankind. This is the hope we bear as pro-life students: that each human life has infinite worth and potential! Regardless of your faith background, I hope at least this hope-filled recount touched your heart during a wonderful several weeks off from school!
March for Life wrap-up
Following our break, UWF Students for Life made its first-ever trip to Washington D.C. to get a taste of the super large pro-life march. This year, we had an estimated 400,000!!! 90% being young people – abortion holocaust SURVIVORS – taking a stand against the unjust ruling of Roe v. Wade and the other degrading rulings that mark our history!
We saw great numbers of college students, such as the group from Notre Dame numbering in the HUNDREDS. We saw highschoolers, middleschoolers, kids, toddlers, babies, young parents, and even a couple older parents… If anyone tells you that the March for Life is for senior citizens, they have not set foot NEAR the March for Life!
To find out more about our experience, come to our first UWF Students for Life meeting this February 24th (Wednesday) from 7PM-9PM in the Commons Room 225.
Also, don’t forget to check out our pictures from the March on our website! We will definitely be going up to the March for Life next year, and with many more people. Start saving up now and thinking about who else might like to go, and I will do my part to keep you posted about trip planning.
