Re: National Walkout Is Time of Prayer for Many Catholic Schools (CNY, March 15).
The annual March for Life in Washington, D.C., is a deliberate public effort to call attention to and influence legislators. While God hears prayers, it is obvious that legislators did not and still do not.
Those students who should wish to support 17-minute school walkouts to memorialize mass school shootings for gun legislation might regard Catholic in-school activities a stark contrast to the annual release of Catholic school pupils to attend the pro-life march. They, too, want legislators to hear their pro-life voices.
