Our booklet, "Our Media is the Streets" is dedicated to a pro-life activist from Staten Island, Robert Landvogt, whom I met during the first years of my priesthood, and with whom I spent many hours picketing local abortionists. He is the one who first said to me, "Father, our media is the streets." The Priests for Life staff presented him our booklet on street activism, and he responded with a beautiful letter which we reproduce here below. May all pro-life people be recommitted in the public witness they bear.

Dear Fr. Frank Pavone,

Thank you for the dedication in your brochure "Our Media is the Streets".

In times such as these when our beloved America is shrouded in darkness by the culture of death, I often think of those days of World War II when the European continent was, in effect, shrouded in darkness. The people of those occupied lands were subjected to the constant propaganda of an evil ideology, and truth was blacked out.

The Allied nations sent messages of hope and truth via short wave radio beams into that occupied continent. Those radio beams were rays of light that penetrated through the evil darkness.

So, it is today whenever pro-life people take to the streets professing the sanctity of human life, each is a ray of the light of truth penetrating through the darkness of the culture of death.

God Bless You Always,

Robert Landvogt
