ProLifeCon Going on Today in DC

January 23, 2012

So, having fallen off the blog wagon for a while, I was surprised to get an email from my friend Chris Marlink inviting me to be a guest blogger and tweeter for the ProLifeCon this morning. What a great way to get me off my blogging duff and back into the world of social media! So, here I am with a quick, impromptu post to spread the word of today’s events. As the 2012 Election race heats up, my goal is to revive this blog, and get back into the political loop.

In the way of an update, I have moved from West Michigan to the greater Washington, DC area. I’m closer to the zoo than ever, but I am also bombarded with more obligations than ever. My current military career position precludes me from directly engaging in politics, but I can certainly share my two-cents, and encourages others to get involved. And, of course, I can still VOTE! As a reminder, the views in this blog are my own, and do not reflect that of any of the agencies I work with or for (please see my profile disclaimer).

Tweeters, blogger, and other internet activists gathered in DC today at the FRC headquarters to spread the pro-life message. I was honored to be invited to be a featured Tweeter, and found myself encouraged to reengage in the prolife movement. If you caught my Twitter feed this morning, then you probably already know about some of the great speakers we heard.

Thanks to some really crappy weather, I wasn’t able to make it to the event in person, but I followed along with the live stream at The gang at FRC will be posting the stream later for those that missed it, or just want to see it again. Speakers included country singer Collin Raye, Representatives from the US Congress, and members of the FRC staff. Be sure to check it out, and share any links about the prolife fight here on my blog.

Great achievements have been made in the fight to preserve and respect life, but there is so much more to be done. The next step I see is electing a Senate that will pass the prolife bills that the House is already passing. This should be something we’re all thinking about come this November. In the meantime, find out where your current Senator stands on prolife issues, and let them know your thoughts!
