Today I would like to highlight some of the projects of Montgomery County Right To Life. To encourage families to have pro-life conversations each year they sponsor four contests open to students from second grade up to age 25. The contests are not academic exercises but rather conversation starters to share the message of Life! There is an essay contest, poster, oratory, and video contest.
This year the Video Contest was near and dear to my heart because my son Ian shared the story of his little brother and tied for 2nd place!
Our family will be attending the Montgomery County Right to Life Dinner and Dr. Alveda King will be the keynote speaker for this year’s Dinner for Life celebration. Her father, A.D. King, was involved in the civil rights movement both independently and alongside his brother, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Alveda’s family suffered the bombing of their home in Birmingham on the Saturday before Mother’s Day 1963. A.D. was in a room directly below his brother’s at the Lorraine Motel when the gun blast went off that killed Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Sadly, April 4 is the 50th anniversary of his assassination. Alveda experienced her own father’s death just 15 months later.
Dr. King is at the forefront of the issue of our time – the respect for Life. She currently serves as Director of Civil Rights for the Unborn, the African-American Outreach for Priests for Life. She is also a voice for the Silent No More Awareness Campaign, sharing her testimony of two abortions along with God’s forgiveness and healing. Dr. King recently launched a project to produce a full-length feature film, Roe v Wade: The Untold Story. Come be inspired by this dynamic leader!
We would love for you to join us at the dinner!
