Not a Protest, an Hour of Prayer – Photo Story

Every first Sunday in October, there is an event called “Life Chain” where people who are pro-life get together and pray for the people involved in abortion. Starting in California 36 years ago, it has moved nationwide and become a practice in Winona for the last decade. On October 1st, 2023, there were supporters lining up Broadway Street in Winona with citizens aging from one to eighty.

Barb says she tries to go to the event every year. She mentions how people make this world a better place, referring to a family member of hers who has down syndrome.
Towards the end of the event this family stopped to take a picture, posing for the camera and asking their kids to hold up their signs.
“God bless you,” said one of the boys in passing. This is a group of young boys who were seen earlier together at the end of the street. Their parent/guardian was not around, but they still wanted to get their photo taken to show their support.
