It left me without words —  the Glenn Beck “Restoring Honor” rally in front of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC on Martin Luther King day. It was broadcast live on CSPAN. Beck had claimed it was not to be a political event but a spiritual one. True to his promise, he did not give a speech but “preached.”   The whole program was so beautiful that I cried. Friend Dolores called after it was over. “Did you cry?” I asked. “Yes,”  she answered. “That’s how I knew it was for real.” Friend Jon drove to DC to be present at the rally. He called me after it was over to proclaim Glenn Beck “anointed.”    I agreed.

Alveda King, daughter of the late slain civil rights activist Rev. A. D. King and niece of Dr. Martin Luther King was scheduled to speak and asked Beck to pray with her beforehand. She noted that he was smart to wear a bullet-proof vest (“for my wife”) and he offered to get one for her.   Though she was obviously afraid she declined the offer and decided to trust God.

We who have attended the annual March for Life in DC know how the liberal media love to diminish the size of the crowds when they report. Jon was sure there were a half million people there. Fox News gave a similar number. CBS and ABC reported numbers under 100,000. When are they going to get real?

Thank God 240 important religious leaders were brave enough to be in attendance. When Beck was unable to get any military presence to present the national colors he decided to put up two American flags honored by Boy Scouts. But there was, indeed, a flyover, not arranged by man.

Here’s just a taste of the rally.


Here is a link to Glenn Beck’s keynote  speech at the rally.  The lines are drawn more clearly than ever.  Expect all hell to break loose.


Stand, therefore, having girded your loins with truth, and having put on the breastplate of righteousness, and having shod your feet with the equipment of the gospel of peace, besides all these taking the shield of faith with which you can quench all he flaming darts of the evil one. And take the helmet of salvation and the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. — Ephesians 6:11-15

Stand in the blaze of the truth. — Glenn Beck
