Life Chain in Cherokee

Wednesday, October 7, 2009

Sunday afternoon, nearly 40 people from Cherokee and surrounding communities, came together to take part in a peaceful, public demonstration, known as Life Chain. This community out-reach project focuses on promoting the protection of all human life, at all stages of life. Demonstrators stood together from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. along Highway 59, near the intersection of Main and Second Streets. Bright, colorful posters had positive, upbeat messages promoting the value of all stages of human life. Many people passing by, offered support of the effort with honks and a thumbs up.

The National Life Chain project takes place every fall, on the first Sunday of October. Cherokee was one of 1,400 towns and cities across the country taking part.
