The Presidential Forum: Saddleback Church: Lake Forest, CA
Less than a quarter mile outside of our front door today, we find this.
All kinds of people. Two people hoping to become president. People looking for tickets. Loud people. Excited people. Desperate people. Crazy people. Normal people. News people. Ron Paul people and McCain people and Obama people and people whose signs seem to imply that they're against just about everyone and everything. Law enforcement people. Saddleback Church people. People interviewing other people. People of every color from all over the county and perhaps the state are gathered, shouting, just a few minutes walk from my front door. People who have a voice and are raising it in peace. Driving past it all several times on my errands today, the thing that struck me most was not one group or one idea, but a deep sense of gratitude for the freedom being exercised right now, just outside of my front door.
