Competing Rallies: Faith, Hope & Charity 600,000-Anger, Hate & Envy 3000

Glen Beck's "8/28 Restoring Honor" and Al Sharpton's "Reclaim the Dream" counter rally went head to head in Washington D.C. on the anniversary of Martin Luther King Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech.

Hundred's of other publications have the competing quotes and there isn't much point in simply restating the same here.

But pictures sure do tell the story of a thousand words.

Beck's message of faith, hope and charity drew a live crowd in excess of 600,000.  The estimates are based on the mall capacity in the two long lines from the Capitol to the Lincoln Memorial at approximately 300,000.  The fully occupied area beyond the two interior tree lines, particularly the left interior tree line, is estimated at as many as twice the number of those 300,000 inside the tree lines.

Sharpton's message of anger, hatred and envy drew about 3000 at a local high school football stadium.
