Restoring Honor rally inspiring


On Aug. 28, at the Restoring Honor Rally in Washington held between the Lincoln and Washington memorials all around the reflecting pool, Glenn Beck said he hoped we Americans would each reflect on our lives and vow to restore ourselves to being honest in every way, morally clean.

He even challenged that we pay our tithing to whatever church, synagogue or mosque where we worship, and pray that God can bless our nation once more.

I have felt a strong desire for change over the years, ready to do whatever necessary to bring about change to return to founding principles.  

As I walked amidst a very orderly and respectful mass of people, I felt like each was the neighbor I would dream of having in my own neighborhood; here walked people who are the proverbial salt of the earth. The spirit of truth and righteousness was heavy over the crowd and we all knew it.


Unlike at a professional sporting event, the 500,000 in attendance left not one scrap of trash behind; nor was there one arrest.

I came away that weekend with determination to always remember God and make necessary changes, regardless of the consequences.

Critics may bear false witness about this rally, but I testify that this event was one of honor, attended by people who love their God, their families, and America’s liberty.

May God bless America and all who defend it.
