March for our Lives & Palm Sunday
We humans are capable at hurting and healing. This Saturday I am taking part in a pre-Palm Sunday procession: The March for our Lives Laredo. I am so very glad that our vestry, (Church Board), stepped up to help make this event possible in our community. As we begin Holy Week I pray we grow in healing and diminish in hurting.

March for our Lives - Sat. March 24, 2018
Start at 9:30 a.m. - Walk about 8 blocks to Pan American Courts
n March 24, the March for Our Lives movement will take to the streets to demand that we end the epidemic of mass shootings in our schools today. We stand united & march in solidarity with the March for Our Lives taking place in Washington D.C. We have adopted their mission statement as our own. https://marchforourlives.com/mission-statement/
This is a non-partisan event. The focus is to make our schools safer for our students, teachers, and staff, as well as demanding that Congress take immediate action to bring forth a comprehensive & effective bill to address the issue of guns and gun violence in schools & our communities.
We will start in front of the Laredo Civic Center and march to the Pan American Courts & Cafe to rally & listen to speakers. Voter registrars will be present so you can register to vote if you have not done so already!
No signs/shirts/displays glorifying violence or guns permitted. This is a family-friendly event & well-behaved pets on leashes are welcome.
