Just wanted to share my experience at ground zero today. I only had 20 minutes to spend there on my lunch break, so I was tempted not to bother go. But I'm glad I did. A group walked by and a woman cackled "...nothing better to do..." It struck me: She's right, I have nothing better to do. In fact, what is there in this world more valuable and important for me to do with my time than to stand and pray for an end to abortion? I'll be going back. I have nothing better to do. And I'm proud of it.
At approximately 2.30 p.m. today, Wednesday 20th October I along with four other people were keeping the vigil at the abortion clinic at 65 Bank Street. Ottawa. At this time a group of what appeared to tourists with their guide approached the scene from the direction of Wellington Street, walking of the east side of Bank Street. The guide stopped in front of the clinic and in front of us vigil keepers. He gathered his group of approximately thirty people around him and began what appeared like a talk on what was taking place. After which the guide smiled, waved and gave us the “thumbs-up” sign. The entire group then done the same, taking the time to take some photographs before they continued on south on Bank Street. On this day also two women southbound in a car stopped in traffic and winding down the passenger’s window voiced their praise for what we were doing. We are not alone in our endeavours.
