“Do you hear the people sing?”

“Do you hear the people sing?”

 

Life on the road is not easy. There are a few comforts that have particularly helped us adjust: The Les Mis soundtrack on constantly in the car and in our heads, smuggled peanut butter and jelly (jam depending on your nationality) sandwiches, but most of all, the hospitality and support of all the people we have met along the way. Our team has not yet walked a day alone. In every town so far local people have taken time out of their busy days to walk with us, even if just for a few minutes or a whole day or two. I expected to run into plenty of wonderful people on Crossroads, but I never expected to meet so many people willing to put their day-to-day lives on hold to walk and stand as witnesses for the lives of the unborn. These are crucial days in the pro-life movement in Ireland. Human life, sacred life, innocent life is at stake. The Irish people have heard the call and are answering it. People of all ages have joined us thus far from Dublin, Wicklow, Wexford, and Waterford. Although it is only a week into the walk, one thing has become very clear. The Irish people will not just let this horrendous crime enter without making a stand. Their voices must and will be heard. “Do you hear the people sing?”
