We, the people vs. they, the media

Half-a-million strong.

Update: decent Washington Post article

Beautiful image; It's kind of like an impressionist painting, a field of God's flowers praying for life.

We had one index-card-sized picture, buried in the Local News section of the paper, which mentioned a few thousand protestors and (of course) counter protestors.

Thank you for the picture. It appears to have been well attended.

God bless,

Hate to have to say this, but that's a photo from Obama's 2009 inauguration, not from the 2013 March for Life. Yes, more than 500,000 people came to the March for Life this year -- but, to this nation's everlasting shame, far, far, far more than that came to Obama's 2009 inauguration.

Thanks, Jordanes. I was then mislead by Google, which popped this photo up under the heading of "March for Life." But then sometimes headings and photos are mismatched under a search.

The main thing is that there were half-a-million at the March this year; and during years I've been there (over a decade of Marches), it's often looked like this, but without the horizontal barricades, which didn't quite make sense in this photo.

Best -- PP
