8/28 Restoring Honor Rally


The media initially reported that there were over a thousand people who attended the rally. If you look at the picture I'd say that was an understatement! They did later keep upping their estimates but I'm not sure they even came close to how many people were there. The reflecting pool area holds 200,000 people. Another field holds between 250,000 to 300,000 people. Those were full, as were the areas behind the memorial and people were filling up across the street and filling in around the Washington Monument. My husband, his son with wife and daughter, another grandson, my daughter and her 2 children with her uncle and aunt, are all in that crowd somewhere, looking like ants at a family reunion picnic. In DH's very eloquent words "It's AWESOME!" I can't wait to see all the pictures he took and hear about it in more detail, but in the meantime I got this picture from Glenn Beck's website. For those who want to watch a great video about this incredible event click on this C-SPAN link.
Please leave a comment below. I love hearing from you.

Thank you for sharing this. The media is nothing more than a liberal puppet and of course they aren't going to give the accurate #, it would look bad to say there are several hundred THOUSAND people, who traveled from all across the USA to be there. We'd have loved to go but just couldn't swing it and I'm quite sure we are NOT the only ones.

Thank you again and please share the pictures, we'd LOVE to see them!

Hi, I had to move my blog again so that I could have a new blog profile as well. I will be closing this blog profile down soon. So sorry for the confusion! Here is the link to the new one, just moved everything over today:
