Farewell Nellie: We won’t forget you! Rest in peace after a job well done.

African Americans and women have lost a good friend in Nellie Gray. For those who knew her, Nellie could be depended upon to be loyal to the core when she embraced a truth. Early in this century, Nellie included the voices of the women of the Silent No More Awareness Campaign and the African American community as part of the March for Life in a very significant manner.

The precious moments on stage with the gathered marchers are always very coveted. Many would deeply appreciate just a moment to speak before the multitudes at the Annual March for Life on or near January 22, the anniversary of the Roe vs Wade decision.

After experiencing the deep honor of joining Pastor Luke Robinson and other African Americans on stage to deliver the message of how abortion is black genocide at the Annual March for Life; and after standing with Janet Morana and Georgette Forney and the growing numbers of Silent No More Awareness partners on stage at the March every year to proclaim that we will be silent no more regarding the harm abortion does to women; I can only say that I thank God for Nellie Gray.

We will miss Nellie. I believe she would want us to march on for life until the victory is won. The greatest tribute we can give to Nellie, along with our prayers of thanksgiving for her life, legend and legacy, is to increase the numbers at the March for Life 2013. May God bless you. Let’s keep on marching for life, and for Nellie.
