Pierce Franklin Long, Jr. was born on July 5, 1933. He was my mother’s older brother, my grandparents’ first child, their only son. Because he was born so close to the Fourth of July, my grandmother used to call him, “my little firecracker.” And it’s true that Pierce always sparkled with life and personality, with humor and charm....Read the rest of this touching tribute to Savannah's Uncle Pierce here

If you are on the blog because you saw Colleen Carroll Campbell interview Eileen Haupt and I last night, welcome! We filmed that interview a couple of years ago in St Louis. Meanwhile KIDS is going strong, as you can see by the posts about the March for Life from Eileen. I was down with the flu and watching on TV. It was a historic March for Life, the 40th anniversary of Roe v Wade, freezing cold, with 650,000 participants braving the cold. The photo of Eileen Haupt's hand holding the KIDS sign made it onto the Washington Post Blog photo essay on the March.
KIDS marchers are a wonderful group and we welcome you to our mailing list if you are interested in joining us in the March or just supporting our efforts in prayer.
Leave a comment below and tell us who you are.
