The 40 Days for Life volunteers in Romania find some of their greatest joys in being able to talk to passersby on the street ? especially those who don?t agree with the vigil?s message. ?Some even approach us with indignation,? said one of the team members.

But after a bit of discussion, the indignation can go away. Conversations often end with a smile and a handshake. ?I had that happen twice today,? he said.

In one particular instance, three young men who were stopped at the ATM were saying that the prayer vigil makes no difference. But after hearing what the vigil was all about, their attitudes changed. ?They said they admire what we do,? said the volunteer.
