Picture posted online here.
The above picture of Governor Palin was sent to me with the following words:
Sarah Palin wiping a tear during the dramatic bagpipe rendition of Amazing Grace accompanied by Gospel choir: "8/28 Restoring Honor Rally" at The Lincoln Memorial
Glenn Beck's Restoring Honor Rally brought hundreds of thousands of patriots to the Lincoln Memorial on Saturday. It was not a political event; it was an American event. Many say it was more like a "revival" with a clear message that America needs to return to faith, to God, to the honor that is the fabric of our very existence. It certainly had a clear spiritual message--one of dependence on God, unity, and hope. And our troops received the respect and recognition they so deserve.
How appropriate the song "Amazing Grace," for we are what we are by the grace of God, and we are in desperate need of His continued grace to get where we must go.
God bless America, and, more importantly, America bless God.
Update: Below is the video of the bagpipe rendition of "Amazing Grace." A mall filled with people singing it--what a sight and sound! It certainly does pull on the heart strings. "One nation under God..."
