Restoring Love was held at Dallas Stadium this past weekend. Tens of thousands of people joined the event, which was a rallying cry to people who believe in the goodness of America and the power of the individual. Mercury One coordinated the effort, which included an astounding 35,000 volunteers who worked in the Dallas Area on 305 different service projects.
Despite the dismal and anticipated lack of media coverage, the event was an awe-inspiring success. Fourteen trucks were filled to capacity with food collected from the stadium parking lot, which ultimately furnished over a million meals for needy families. It was even trending on Twitter. All of this was accomplished without government assistance or media coverage.
A sea of yellow vests took over the stadium as people waited to be transported to their destinations. When an onlooker stopped and exclaimed, "It is like a volunteer army!" One woman smiled and said, "but you won't see it on the news." She was right.
The list of projects was endless, people worked in soup kitchens, painted fences, fixed up homes for elderly people, and on and on...
Joe Perry, President of Mercury One, rolled up his sleeves and worked alongside his staff and the tireless volunteers. Approachable and yet with a strong presence, Mr. Perry is clearly the right man for this job. The Toronto Sun quoted Mr. Perry;
"We really want to make it the beginning of a movement where people realize that they have the answers and solutions. We want it to be something where people go back to their communities and get involved politically, get involved in faith matters, and get involved helping their neighbours."
While the mainstream media relentlessly reminds everyone of the Chick-Fil-A protests consisting of small groups in front of the various fast food restaurants, the Mercury One event was solidifying into what may just be the third great awakening.
Glenn Beck closed out the Restoring Love event at the Stadium on Saturday night. Speaking to tens of thousands of people, he dazzled the crowd by displaying historical artifacts and in his typical fashion, passionately spoke of America and inspired the crowd to love one another, and quoting Abraham Lincoln, Beck proclaims, "with malice toward none, and charity for all."
