Here we go again. The residents of Wilkes-Barre have to cover the taxes for one of our local colleges. They seem to be slowly grabbing up all the prime tax property in the city (Ramada hotel), leaving the citizen to pay for their public services (police, fire, ambulance, road maintenance).
Come to the March for Life on Jan 22. at the Mall in Washington, D.C. For details, contact the Pro Life Center at 570-826-1819.
My first bus trip from Wilkes-Barre to the March for Life was about 35 years ago, with my brother, Robert, of eternal memory. I was the youngest one on the bus and considered “young” while at the “March.” The general consensus was “we must gain more and more pro-lifers to stop this tragedy of abortion!”
Today, the age of the participants at the march has reversed. They are the teens, the college students, the seminarians and religious, the young parents with many children. Countless youths are now the ones coordinating the pro-life pilgrimages, participating in life rallies and praying for an end to abortion, infanticide and euthanasia.
Now I realize that our prayers of 35 years ago have been answered with time. The pro-life people we have gained, and continue to gain, are those who come from generous families who honor a “culture of life.”
