October is Respect Life month and the first Sunday of the month is Respect Life Sunday. In 1987 the first life chain was created in Sacramento, Calif., with 2,000 participants. Each year since on Respect Life Sunday, people from across the nation join together to get these messages out to passers-by. The Buffalo area has hosted this life chain for 22 years. Locally, there had not been a chain for over 10 years.
