Shortly after returning from their holiday break in 2011, Glenn gathered key members of his staff into his office and unveiled his next big idea: a massive event much like Restoring Honor...in Jerusalem, Israel.
The staff reacted in disbelief. While some may have known he wanted to do some kind of event over in Israel, no one thought he would ever want to do something to the scale of Restoring Honor, much less halfway around the world with less than seven months to take the idea from conception to execution.
Things became even tougher when Glenn became insistent on announcing the event before plans became finalized. And while he wasn't able to articulate why he needed to do this event so quickly, current events quickly showed the need for people to stand with Israel. Three days after announcing the event, President Obama announced new Mideast policy for the U.S., wherein he clearly stated his support for a two-state solution wherein Israel would give up land, including key strategic areas, to create a Palestinian state.
Just a few short months later, Glenn held not one but three major events in Israel under the banner of Restoring Courage. There was the faith-based "Courage to Love", the night of history and reflection on "Courage to Remember", and finally "Courage to Stand" where Glenn called for a global movement of people uniting behind the ideas of freedom and responsibility.
In many ways, the Restoring Love event in Dallas on 7/28 is about putting the ideas discussed at Restoring Courage into action. At Restoring Courage, Glenn announced a global movement of peace and freedom. During Restoring Love, FreePAC will host the first global Tea Party event. Meanwhile, the day of service and the Restoring Love event at Cowboys Stadium will celebrate personal responsibility and individual freedom.
