Restoring Honor

I am going to Washington D. C. on  August 28.

This is a rally to restore honor to America and to honor our military. We restore honor by starting with ourselves. Honor means doing the right thing always, no matter the cost, especially if no one is watching. Our Founding Fathers wrote, "For the support of this Declaration, with a firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our Sacred Honor."  We must start electing honorable people (do I have to say from both parties?) to public office from the city level to the national level. That means, as American citizens, we, I, have to start educating ourselves about the candidates who are running for office.  We cannot make our decisions based on media sound-bites.

The 8/28 Rally is being completely misrepresented by the media. I was listening to a local radio announcer the other day, his guest was the head of the NAACP from  the area.  They were totally bashing Glenn Beck, and his 8/28 "political" rally,  Apparently, (I did not know this) August 28, the Lincoln Memorial, and Martin Luther King, Jr. belong only to the blacks.  No one can ever meet at the Lincoln Memorial on August 28 - ever.  Glenn Beck also plans to read the "I Have a Dream Speech".  According to the two men on the radio, this is next to blasphemous.  If I remember, part of MLK's dream was that " men would be known by the content of their character and not the color of their skin", and yet, this entire interview was about the color of one's skin.  How dare a white man speak the words of MLK.  They, and the rest of the media, have decided that this rally is for white, bigoted, hate-mongers, and we're just going to stir up trouble.  That couldn't be further from the truth!  They forgot to notice that Dr. Alveda King, neice of Martin Luther KIng, Jr. will be there.  

This rally is about restoring honor, faith, hope and charity.  All political/protest signs are to be left at home. If we see anyone with signs, we are to politely ask that the signs be discarded. Faith, hope, charity. If any signs are seen, you can know that they are there to stir up trouble. It's about Honor. Faith. Hope. Charity. God knows we need it in Washington, D.C.
