January 22, 2014 - It was one of the coldest days in four decades of the March for Life, with the temperature at just 19 degrees when marchers began their annual trek from the Mall to the Supreme Court. Then the winds picked up, driving wind chill temperatures down into the single digits. The cold weather closed down area schools and even the federal government, but hundreds of thousands of intrepid pro-lifers were undeterred, and filled the streets of Washington to make their case for life.
Patrick Kelly, Past State Deputy of the D.C. Knights of Columbus, made his first appearance as Chairman of the Board of Directors of the March. Virginia Knights served as marshals for the March, as they have since the beginning, and their efforts were once again directed by Tom Hogan, PSD.
Virginia state officers were actively involved, and Knights from dozens of local councils in the Old Dominion could be seen everywhere. And we'll continue to be in the forefront the battle until we succeed in protecting every child's inalienable right to life.
