Glenn Beck “Restoring Honor” D.C. rally
Glenn Beck had his “Restoring Honor” rally in D.C. Saturday, the 28th.. Sarah Palin was among the guest speakers. My son and I came up from Richmond, Virginia. It took us from 7:30 a.m. to 11:36 a.m. to get on the subway at Franconia and arrive at the monument!! The subway platforms were empty for all practical purposes. The security man allowed only about 20 or so people at a time to enter the kiosk to buy tickets and board. When we left we were not allowed to board at the Smithsonian. We had to go to L’Enfant? But, when we came up over the hill and saw the crowd of people spreading in all directions as far as the eye could see; and, listened to the music, singers, and speakers, especially Glenn, it was all worth it!! Absolutely awesome!!
I heard there were a million people there from sources throughout the crowd. Though that is not an official tally, I would not be surprised if the actual numbers are not actually higher. My son took some great pictures and some movies with his phone. If he can find a way for me to use some of them here, I will post them later.
I missed Sarah’s speech; but, heard Glenn speak. His words about our founding principles, faith, hope, and charity, were especially moving. Check out Glenn’s blog and read his post and see the pictures he has for the event. While you’re there, go to his home page and check out his site.
