12:14 AM: patience advocate
i've been there since january, but i finally got my nametag so it's official!
right on time, i saw our first protesters of the season, who were really remarkably mild: a group of about 8 holding a large picture of mary and who prayed noticeably louder whenever someone was in their vicinity. i'm not happy about anyone shaming patients, most of whom aren't even there to have an abortion, but they were gone by noon.
