I recently marched for life with many people from many states, especially one 86-year-old nun from Divine Mercy Parish (Trenton) named Sister Juanita. 

Now Sister Juanita lives her faith, she lives Christ’s words. She walked from the Washington Monument to Union Station, then to The Catholic University of America.  I was proud to look out for this nun as were other Knights.  She marched for the unborn as did other people regardless of age, sex or race.

I listened to VP Mike Pence; I was moved, and I think we might have the wrong man in charge. There was a woman walking who saw a pin with Trump’s picture and message. She (responded, saying), “I came to walk for life of the unborn, not him.” 

We have a ban, mixed feelings. The Pontiff has gotten involved. I think Trump should listen! 

I marched for life; I marched for the unborn, for the children. Sister Juanita marched for faith and life, as her mother gave her life!
