In case you have been out of the loop for a while, tomorrow is Glenn Beck’s Restoring Honor 8/28 event. Already, crowds are filling up the Mall. It will certainly be an exceptional day.
Who will receive the three Badges of Merit that Glenn Beck will give away? I’m not sure, but I can always speculate. The three people that I’m listing here are either the people that I would give the medal to or I think that Beck would give the medal to. Or at least, these are the people that I’m thinking about right now.
Beck will give away three awards: one for faith, one for hope, and one for charity.
Faith: I don’t think that Beck will give the badge to him, but if I were to award the Badge of Merit for someone based on faith, I would give the badge to Franklin Graham. I’m not even sure if this guy is on Beck’s radar (although I think that he may have been on his show once), but Graham is a guy that tells it like it is. His father, Billy Graham, may have been the guy with the big crusades, but the elder Graham has since sold out. Franklin will make a statement based on his faith, and he won’t back down from it. When he appears on national television shows, he preaches the Word. He doesn’t seem to put his foot in his mouth and make really silly mistakes like Pat Robertson either.
Hope: This one doesn’t stand out to me, but I think that I’d give away the hope badge to Chris Gardner. He was the guy from The Pursuit of Happyness. He spent a period as a homeless man with a small boy to care for. He worked hard to get a job in finance. He is now a millionaire. Not only that, he seems like a good guy. He gives me hope.
Charity: Now, this medal is easier to guess. I think that Glenn Beck will give the charity badge of merit to John Huntsman. This man is a billionaire who plans on dying broke. He started his own cancer research center, and the people there even eat nice.
So there you have it. My guesses/wishes for the three Badges of Merit. We’ll see if I’m right tomorrow.
