Late one afternoon, a car screamed past the 40 Days for Life vigil site in Altamonte Springs, in the Orlando area.

The driver just sat on the horn ? one of those blasts that demands, ?Get out of here!?

The car slowed down ? turned around in a parking lot ? and headed back towards the abortion center. The driver stopped ? rolled the window down ? and took pictures before driving away.

About ten minutes later, another vehicle came by ? no angry horns this time, however. A woman got out ? with tears in her eyes ? and asked the vigil participants if they were praying.

Yes, they were, the volunteers answered.

?Oh thank you very much!? she said, with a touch of relief in her voice. She knew that this was an abortion facility. ?I have driven by here before and seen people praying and just knew that God was working to make it right.?

?We talked for a bit and she moved on,? one vigil participant said, before promising to come back and visit.

?The young woman?s visit completely offset the nasty, horn-blowing photographer,? the volunteer said, ?and reinforced my desire to literally beg this community to support the 40 Days for Life campaign currently underway. Please help --the children need us!?
