This morning, Glenn recounted some of his favorite moments from Restoring Love. More than anything, he was excited to see a change in the course of America. While bad things may still be on the horizon, Glenn believes there truly is “good news” coming out this weekend’s events.
At the event, Glenn declared the beginning of the Third Great Awakening, calling that moment of the coolest in his life. He said:
Ready to act. Ready to stand. Ready to take up a struggle, to commit, to activate, to live it, to create, to restore love. In our hearts and in America. We will not let go. We will not give up. We are not going to put our cars in neutral. We’re not going to do the easy thing. We’re not going to coast downhill. We’re going to do it the American way. We’re going to do it the right way. We’re going to do it the hard way. We’re going to put our shoulders down and we’re going to get behind America and we’re going to push. And we’re going to push this car up the hill. And know this. Know this, just like this man and this man and that man: Most of us will never see the top of the hill. But that’s the way it’s always been! They never saw it, either. The difference is they never, ever gave up. And neither will we. Because we are Americans! In the end… in the end, my friend, in the end we will have more than our great name. We will have a great country to pass to our children. A legacy for our children. We won’t give up. We will not give up our inheritance. We will not give up the right to feed the hungry! To care for the sick! The right to run a bake sale. We will not give up our right, our responsibility, the work of our hearts, the work we must do, the work we will do because we’re already doing it! I will not let go! I will not let go! I will not sit down! I will not comply, because I know, and you know, America is not done! We’re just getting started. And let me say this, to anybody who happens to be watching this in some far‑off corner of the world or right around the corner here in America, if you are looking for American weakness, if you’re looking for a group of people to sit down and surrender, I invite you to look at this crowd in this stadium!
“That was one of the coolest moments of my life. And if anybody was there, I’ll bet you you say the same thing because it is true. It’s true. As a guy who has been bringing you the bad news for I don’t know how long now, let me bring you the good news: That is true. And if you don’t know what the Third Great Awakening means, look it up. Look it up. People have been praying for it since before Martin Luther King was born. People have been praying for it, and it’s here. It’s here. It’s why we have, I really believe we ‑‑ don’t you feel it? Don’t you feel that there’s been a turning point in the country?”
“Now, that doesn’t mean that God is going to fix everything for us. We’ve got real trouble coming our way. We do. We have trouble coming our way, but nothing we can’t conquer. Nothing we can’t get through. Americans are awake. Now, not everybody. It’s each of our jobs to continue to wake people up. But here’s the good news: We get to wake them up with good news now. We don’t have to wake them up to the impending doom. We wake them up with the good news. Spread the news, that Americans are good and so we will be great. We’re exceptional. If President Obama doesn’t understand how exceptional America is, show me the people that without any tragedy gathered by these numbers, served 34,000 people, served, in one weekend, served. Show me that in the history books. Never. Never been done before. Find it. Any historian, find it. It doesn’t exist. And if the media has their way, this won’t exist, either. If the progressive historians have their way, this won’t exist, either. You spread the word.”
