It seems like a lot of our blog readers were at the Right to Life March in DC this past month. So was Fr. Peter Walsh, C.S.C., with some students from Yale has he relates to us in this month's installment of "Ivy League Catholic."
Not that the world needed another example of the innate leadership skills of Yale students, but when the march stalled on the Mall by over an hour and a half, the Yalies decided to march on their own. Much to our surprise other groups followed and we became the kickoff group for the entire march until the designated frontline marchers, and banner managed to outrun us. We had some prayer time in front of the Supreme Court Building before heading back to the metro for the trip home.
Our students can feel a bit out of step at times with the culture on campus. Yale is such a diverse place, I wonder if any student feels entirely in sync with campus culture. The March for Life is very much a youth movement, and our students gain a great sense of support and solidarity by attending with thousands of young adults from across the country.
