The buses are coming, the buses are coming!
There's always a strong sense of anticipation on the day before the March for Life.  Buses are cruising down the highways, people are updating social network sites as to their current whereabouts on the journey to Washington, DC, final plans are being made.  The National Shrine of the Basilica of the Immaculate Conception becomes home, welcoming pilgrims as as they stream into town -- a place for prayer, for a meal, for reunion with pro-lifers from around the nation.  

There might be 500,000 people heading to the Mall area surrounding the Washington Monument tomorrow. It's doubtful that you'll hear of it in the secular media, but the people will be here.  They're coming now.  Some have already arrived.  

Please say a prayer for all who are traveling today and for all who are marching tomorrow.  There will be a lack of sleep, blustery weather, close quarters ... but a strong desire to stand for life and the inherent dignity of each unborn child.
