Coming together to heal a nation, Glenn Beck stood before 40 thousand people at the “Restoring Love” event in Dallas, TX to speak about waking up the hearts of Americans through reminders of what this country was founded on and the importance of Loving and doing for one another as our founding fathers have done in creating our freedoms which most people now take for granted. The importance of learning our history and the truth of our being is critical for without such knowledge one is bound to lose all that the generations before us have worked and died for in the name of God and a better future for us “their children”.
This message comes at a time when our world is on the brink of destruction as God is being replaced with big government and people are conditioned to be separate from each other and blinded to the truth that we are all one nation “Under God: Indivisible“. It was something he had never done before, and something that most were probably not expecting. His speech was spoken word, with music performances between each speech.
“I wanted to tell you how we got here. Because when it started I didn’t know,” he told them.
“To have honor, you must be true to God. Our rally in Washington was about prayer. To have honor, you must have faith,” he explained.
“Courage is critical if you want truth. We went to Israel because they have courage,” he explained.
“What is Love? It’s not just hugs and kisses. Love is service. Love is charity. To restore our purpose as a nation. To remember who we are. America is great because Americans are good. We don’t need somebody else to tell us how to give charity, how to show love. We know. We will be the shelter from the storm, so they won’t be alone.”
Glenn closed the speech reading from the Gettysburg address:
The world will little note, nor long remember what we say here, but it can never forget what they did here. It is for us the living, rather, to be dedicated here to the unfinished work which they who fought here have thus far so nobly advanced. It is rather for us to be here dedicated to the great task remaining before us — that from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion — that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain — that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom — and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.
“That is our charge. That is our duty. That is our blessing,” Glenn said. “With malice toward none and charity toward all.”
“Let us tonight restore love – for love will hold us together. Love will make us a shelter from the storm. I will be my brother’s keeper.”
“The world will know once again that they are not alone. The Americans again have arrived. With honor, courage, and love.”
As he ended his speech, Glenn was joined on stage by all of the evenings performers: Alex Boye, Kalai, Kevin Kern, Kari Jobe, Kim Harley, Clyde Bawden and Matt Maher for an explosive reprise of “Hold Us Together”.
