    My initial reaction was – “nothing” – and then I realized – that standing peaceably on non-trespassing-ground outside an abortion clinic, with or without holding a sign, without addressing the patrons, simply praying – and that often in the heart – has now become something you take your life in your hands to do. So – in order to drive over there and stand out there – I now have to think beyond “well do I need socks for today? how cold is it?” – I have to think – “I might die today. Are all my affairs in order?” – and YES, it is what I would willingly die for – the defense of a child!
