Today Delaware Right to Life is holding their monthly Face the Truth demonstration outside the Planned Parenthood building right on Delaware Avenue in Newark, three blocks from the University. I try to make every one of those demonstrations so I can hold a poster and flash the peace sign at everyone who goes by. Sometimes people I know will wave, sometimes I'll see them see me and quickly look away. Newark is a small university city.
So I looked forward to being out there again today. But then I found out that my granddaughter Ruth's first soccer game was taking place at the same time. So I'm off to soccer. One thing I regret is that I didn't attend each and every sports event of my own children. I had a lot of excuses, especially having so many little ones I was caring for. But looking back, I wish very much that I had.
So my grandchildren will benefit. And today I will not try to save the world but enjoy my family.
