MONONA -- A walk down the hallway at Immaculate Heart of Mary (IHM) School in Monona doesn't take too long -- less than a minute to get from one end to the other.

Elementary school classes, up to grade four, are on one side, with the middle school classes, up to grade eight, on the other side.

While the distance is short, the journey from one side of the hallway to the other side can be a challenge for students as they become older and enter the middle school grades.

This included the need to focus on issues such as the refugee crisis, global conflict and violence, immigration, health care, climate change, the need for a more just criminal justice system and an end to abortion.

This "whole life" approach was embraced by many marchers, who bore witness to the truth that every person is created with intrinsic dignity and value -- that all human life comes from God and is sacred.
