Two Days at UNC-Charlotte

A handful of us went to the University of NC-Charlotte on April 20 and 21, 2009 with images of an aborted pre-born child. Our purpose was to educate University people (students, faculty and staff) on the missing element of abortion. Also, we hoped to recruit students who will start a pro-life organization on campus.

This, Above, is a replica of a Congo-ese hut. On our first day some students were promoting Congo Awareness Day nearby. Apparently six million people have been murdered there in recent years. A young woman in a colorful African dress spit up stage blood and cried, "My baby! My baby!"

We stood around the Belk Tower facing oncoming traffic.

This, Above, represents some of the traffic.

On our first day eight people total helped on our team. On the second day we had only three, so we doubled up on signs. This, Above, is Jane Bullington of the Center for Bioethical Reform, SE Region. Their office is in Knoxville, TN.

Peggy from Atlanta talking with an interested student. April 21 was international Holocaust Remembrance Day. On the trip home from Charlotte I listened to a radio program from Davidson College (Performance Today) featuring symphonic composers who were killed in Nazi death camps. One of those was Marcel Tyberg. His music is just now being performed.
