On the way to the Navajo rug show, we drove up Oracle Road. Suddenly a large group of people were marching along the side of the road- an anti-abortion protest. They held a variety of signs including some that said "Choose Life!" Catholic priests were visible, dressed in black including some higher-ups in their fancy dresses. They were leading the marchers into the Holy Hope Cemetery, which was probably symbolic in some way.

Meanwhile, perhaps 200 feet away, a funeral was going on in the cemetery. We were stopped so the marchers could walk across the street and I turned to look. A group of men were carrying a white coffin to the grave site as people dressed in black stood, some of them turning to see what the commotion was. I wondered how they felt, standing there burying someone they cared about, as people chanted "Choose Life!" over and over again.
