College Students on 3 Simultaneous 3,000 Mile Pro-Life Walks

There are college students walking across the United States, west to east, talking to people they meet en route about the value of human life. From this article from Christian Wire Service:
"Life issues are considered by many to be taboo, but we have found that most people, at the very least, respect the moral courage it takes to stand up for what you believe in rather than the indifference that tends to plague society today," said [Crossroads] Northern Walk Leader Matthew Maes, of Atlanta, Georgia. "We are not trying to force our values down anyone's throat, it's quite the contrary, we have a very simple message about the sanctity of all human life. We have listened patiently to the other side. Now it is our turn to be heard."
This weekend the walkers are more or less halfway through their walks. There are three different groups, traveling three different routes. They plan to meet in Washington, D.C. on the steps of the Capitol, and from there travel to World Youth Day in Cologne, Germany.
