Student killed during pro-life walk across the country 'missed deeply'

INDIANAPOLIS -- Andrew Moore felt called to walk across America this summer with pro-life college students to help save the lives of unborn babies.

"I had already been involved in the pro-life movement for several years," Moore wrote in a reflection before he joined a group of Crossroads volunteers walking from San Francisco to Washington to pray for an end to legalized abortion. "When I am at home, I pray in front of the local abortion mill almost every day and try to speak to the people going in."

"Crossroads sounded like a good way to serve God and help his children," he added. "I have been considering a vocation to the priesthood for some time, and Crossroads is a great way to work on my discernment -- prayer, sacrifice and separation from the distractions of the world."

The 20-year-old Concord, Calif., college student lost his own life early July 20 when he was hit by a car and killed instantly as he walked along a highway in west-central Indiana with another Crossroads participant.
