Nuns on the Bus ~ the ultimate road trip

We travel for so many reasons – to visit family and friends, explore new cultures, fulfill life-long dreams and maybe even live a more adventurous and economical life in retirement.  But, when I heard about this road trip recently undertaken by a group of Catholic sisters, I wanted to share their story.  Brilliant!

“Nuns on the Bus” is literally a bus filled with Catholic nuns who are traveling from the Midwest to Washington, D.C. to spotlight social justice issues and to protest the House Republican budget.   The sisters are focusing on social issues all along the way — holding press conferences and staging protests against the proposed budget cuts which they say will endanger those most in need.

Can I just say “Rock On Sisters!”   Sister Simone Campbell kicks off the tour on The Colbert Report.
