Proudly attended my first Right to Life March in DC today, at age 70, Pittston native Fred Gedrich, right, who lives in the nation's capital, wrote as he sent these photos via email.

It was a wonderful experience marching up Capitol Hill to the Supreme Court with tens of thousands of fine people shouting ‘We like life' and showing support the unborn, he continued. There were about a dozen counter-demonstrators in front of the Supreme Court shouting obscenities at the marchers.

He added, I ran ahead of marchers to take photos then slipped in with them in the climb up rest of the hill. Some of the lessons taught me by Avoca St. Mary's nuns many years ago actually sunk in!
