Ray Dyer’s trip to Washington DC part 1

Thoughts while riding in a bus to Washington, D.C., for National March for Life.

Tennessee looks just like Oklahoma if we had trees and mountains.

Alveda King, niece of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., has an amazing story she shared with about 3,000 people in Tulsa Tuesday night at the fourth annual rally and March for Life there.

As a young woman, she had two abortions and was on her way to a third when her grandfather intervened. No one in her family knew about the first two abortions. When her grandfather found out about the third, he pulled her aside and told her, “Child, we don’t do this in our family.”

She said it was at that time she discovered her mother had wanted to abort her when she was a college student.

Her father talked her out of it.

I’ve never been to the March for Life in Washington, D.C. They tell me there will be around 500,000 people marching in protest of the 1973 Supreme Court decision known as Roe vs. Wade. They said don’t expect to see many, if any, national media on hand to cover the pro-life event.

Still, as Time Magazine recently reported, the pro-life movement in the United States is winning the war against entities such as Planned Parenthood. That’s good news for the future.

One more thing about Tennessee, it’s against the law to text and drive. That’s good news for today.

    Ray sent this from a crowded bus with his cell phone.

    “Years ago I wrote a column wondering where I would have stood on historic issues if I had lived when these moments were being played out. The Crucifixion of Christ, slavery, integration. On the way back from the National March for Life in Washington D.C. It’s obvious we are living our own history.”

    Look forward to more insights from this historic trip in the El Reno Tribune.
