Restoring Honor: We came to prepare and gather strength | The Post & Email
Overall, considering the tens of thousands leaving early and coming late, we might have approached 1,000,000 attendees.As I said, I did not hear the event that well, and I could not see it. But what I could hear and see were the other Americans near me. We talked of nothing of importance really, because the important thing to say had already been said just by being there.
I felt secure and protected by the strangers surrounding me. I felt akin to them.Tired of not counting, we wanted to be counted.
Tired of not being heard, we wanted to hear the comforting voice of each other.
In the trenches, there was a definite sense of deep-seated anger at the elite and its corruption of our institutions, of our laws and of the souls of our youth and vulnerable members of society. But it is a constructive anger and an irresistible one that will fuel more than a change of majority in Congress, one that goes way beyond politics. It is the kind of anger which turns to wrath.On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial, there was Faith and Love, the kind of Faith and Love of God which we all will need to prevent our anger from turning to the dark side.It was a beautiful day in Washington.
But there is a storm gathering, and we came to prepare, to gather strength and to show force.
