We marched in D.C. to show our support for life from conception

To The Daily Sun,

On Friday, Jan. 22, about 30 teens and young adults from Laconia attended the March for Life and Rally in Washington, D.C. There were six other busloads of adults from New Hampshire in Washington as well. And there were over 200,000 people from across the country there to march too. I was there with the youth from Laconia, including two of my teen grandchildren. What an emotion-filled experience it was to be in the midst of so many pro-life people, especially young adults who are pro-life.

We marched to show our support for life, from conception. We want others to know that life is priceless, a masterpiece not to be thrown away in an abortion.

As the first flakes fell, we started our march up Constitution Avenue to the Supreme Court Building in the glory of beautiful snowfall, and we left Washington just before the roads got dangerous. To be with and witness so many young people showing their concern for life is truly an inspiration.
Life is precious.

Laconia High School community really helped us recover from fire

To The Daily Sun,

We would like to take a moment to express our family's thanks to the many generous people in our community.

On January 5, our family suffered a devastating loss when our home was lost to fire, along with two of our beloved pets. The generous outpouring of support that we were quickly given, within hours of the fire, was amazing. This generosity continued for days after and our family would just like to say thank you to each and every person who helped during this tragic time. Because of the pure acts of kindness and generosity, our family got through a difficult time a little easier.

While we are extremely thankful to ALL of the people involved, we would like to give an extra special thanks to Laconia High School for all the wonderful things they did to help raise money for our family, and for the way they came together to see what they could do to help — from giving proceeds from the basketball and hockey games to students, faculty and parents bringing in items such as toiletries, blankets, pillow, gift cards and money to help our family. And thanks to Coach Kozens for reaching out by giving us clothing from LHS to help us get through the first few days.

The DeForge Family
