The Silent No More event in our state is this week. I'm getting ready to speak there. This is not a task I enjoy. I'm also the main organizer this year, so I've been spending a lot of time talking to men and women who plan to participate. One of the benefits of this event is that it provides a chance for people across our state who are involved in post-abortion ministry to meet each other.

We've arranged five radio interviews that will occur before and after the event. I don't yet know if any press will attend the actual event. We are really in the early stages of learning how to best organize this event, and use it as a vehicle to reach out to women who are in emotional pain after abortion, and unaware that there are many others like them--and that resources are available that can help.

That's wonderful when it happens and yet...I really don't like doing this. The mechanics of putting together an event make me nervous.

One thing I'm excited about is that I'll be travelling to Washington, DC for the January 24 Silent No More event on the steps of the U.S. Supreme Court at 5:00 p.m. Depending on what kind of internet access I can scrounge up, I'll be able to post about the event fairly soon after it happens.
