While it might be easy to act like deer in the headlights when hearing about the atrocities of ISIS in the Middle East and the disregard for unborn life in our own country, history reminds us the power of individuals when they simply stood up for what they knew was right.
David Barton joined Glenn on TV Wednesday, and told the story of Benedict Arnold, the infamous general who defected to the British Army after attempting to facilitate the British capture West Point during the Revolutionary War.
"I knew part of this story," Glenn said on radio Thursday. "But I didn't know about the part where it was just regular citizens who decided to say, 'enough is enough.'"
David Barton recounted how Arnold's treasonous plan was foiled by a handful of men who simply took matters into their own hands.
"These guys, along with some others, had been British prisoners and had escaped from a British prison. And a guy named John Paulding got all these other guys together and said, hey, why don't we set up our own little group right here and give the British some grief?" Barton said.
They set up a checkpoint in the middle of British held territory, where they apprehended the spy Arnold had sent to deliver plans for the capture of West Point. They prevented the takeover and saved the life of George Washington in the process. Had they not stood up and done what they did, our nation may never have been established.
Glenn encouraged his listeners to look for ways to be like John Paulding and stand for life - Never Again Is Now!
"We all must begin to stand. This is our Bonhoeffer moment. This is our Martin Luther King moment. This is our Gandhi moment," Glenn said.
