Eileen, the 40 Days for Life leader in Spring Valley, says she is most thankful again this campaign for "the 25 angels praying and singing among us."

That would be the Sisters of Life, who pray often outside the Planned Parenthood facility.

But they're not the only ones making their presence felt. One afternoon, a young man in a hoodie walked past and stopped to read the signs at the vigil site.

He turned to Eileen and said, "I stand with you!"

"That is exactly what my new friend did," she said. "He stood with me for a little while and then walked away with a thumbs up. A multitude of motorists pass by thanking us, peeping horns of support, thumbs up, and the beautiful words -- God bless you!"
