Lincoln Still Emancipating
Recently, The Radiance Foundation was invited to speak at Nebraska Right to Life’s Pro-Life rally in Lincoln, NE. Thousands gathered (reported up to 5,000) outside the capitol building in an event full of incredible enthusiasm and appreciation. Prolife legislators, including Governor Heineman, greeted the huge crowd and extolled the legislative victories that have helped to protect women and unborn children. The diverse crowd shouted repeatedly, laughing and smiling, reflecting the joy of what liberty brings. People traveled from across the Cornhusker state to prove that their capital city’s namesake is not in vain, but the torchbearer of a proud legacy of emancipating those crying out for freedom. Pregnancy Care Center volunteers, doctors, farmers, teachers, pastors, students, mothers, fathers, children…all united to help restore human dignity to the least of these.

It was an amazing time. Inside the Student Union at the University of Nebraska (which was bursting at the seams with the 1000+ rally participants who could fit in the building), I delivered the keynote address, emphasizing the dire need to save beautiful possibility. It was my absolute favorite time. There was something about Nebraskans…their enthusiasm, optimism, and drive. The venue was standing room only (and there wasn’t any more standing room). We thank Nebraska Right to Life for allowing us to share our bold, yet personal, perspective on the Life issue. Being among such passionate prolifers in Lincoln simply proved that inspiration is a two-way street.
For Liberty. For Life.
