I arrived at Groundzero at 4:54 a.m.and pulled out my beads and began praying to the B.V.M.
Shortly thereafter, a male passerby, started angrily shouting at me.
He yelled, "I'm sorry your mother didn't get an abortion!" My head bowed in silent prayer, I ignored him, and kept on praying the rosary. He then screamed, " What you are doing here is crazy!" (praying peacefully for an end to abortion), I kept on praying and ignoring him.
Finally, before leaving, he threatened me by stating, "If you are still here when I get back I'm coming after you!" Once again, I just kept on praying. He never came back. I finished the vigil by thanking the Blessed Virgin Mary for her intercession.
During the entire incident I did feel somewhat intimidated by all the insults and angry words hurled at me. However, at the same time, I did feel honoured to suffer a little, for love of my unborn brothers and sisters, who silently suffer much worse than this.
