Four years ago today, several hundred thousand Americans descended on the National Mall in Washington, D.C. to partake in the 8/28 Restoring Honor Rally. Glenn was joined on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial by former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.’s niece, Alveda King, baseball great Albert Pujols, members of the Black Robe Regiment, and others for a remarkable day of family, faith, and hope.

Mike Opelka attended the Rally and the events leading up to it before he became an official member of TheBlaze team. Filling for Pat and Stu this afternoon, Mike reflected on the incredible energy and significance of the day – not just for him personally but for all those who attended. He also shared some of the behind-the-scenes moments he witnessed.
