Yesterday I was at a street fair, manning the booth for CT Right to Life. I greeted many people as they walked by, some stopped to talk, share their stories, ask why we were there. One couple approached us for a very different conversation. One that I pray I never forg...

Ok, so the line from Alice in Wonderland’s “The Walrus and the Carpenter” says “…of CABBAGES and KINGS…”, but that comes later. Yesterday I had the amazing opportunity to talk at length with two of my newest friends in their driveway as they gifted me with an ample sup...
