A courageous young man from Oregon made history with the first recorded account of an American teenager with Down syndrome to reach a base camp of Mt. Everest.

The “Stand Up For Religious Freedom” rallies held on Saturday carried with them a sense of urgency with the November election less than 20 days away. While the event was not held to rally for particular candidates, an overarching theme was action. Pro-life Americans cannot in good conscience sit this election out.
