Across the United States, students will soon go to their respective school campuses' flag poles and pray together for friends, family, their teachers and the nation.
Known as "See You at the Pole," the annual event will take place on Wednesday and is expected to have over 1 million participants.
This summer I had the distinct privilege of serving Matt Staver, President of Liberty Counsel, in hosting pastors and wives luncheons in 30 cities preparing the way for "Who Will Stand?" citywide events. These rallies will challenge attendees to make a choice to use our voice for righteousness amidst America's downward spiral.
Matt along with Mike Huckabee, David Barton, Sam Rodriguez, Ralph Reed and others are challenging us to make a difference. How? Simply by replacing the muzzle with a megaphone to charitably declare and demonstrate truth.

In these tumultuous times, I commend these men and their helpmates for their dedication and hard work. I learned much from engaging in honest conversations during the luncheons, with these being the primary takeaways from this investment of my life. more >>
