"We are off to a good start!" said Michele in Colorado Springs, which is beginning its 18th 40 Days for Life campaign.

"At our kickoff, we were in competition with a cement mixer that was pouring a new sidewalk," she said. "We had a bullhorn, so we prevailed over the noise."

On the way home, one rally participant saw a pregnant woman with a sign asking for help. The volunteer told the woman about the local pregnancy center and other forms of assistance that are available locally.

"It is a reminder to be aware at all times of people who are in need of help," Michele said. "Perhaps the best help isn't giving them money, but leading them to a place in the community where they can receive ongoing support."
