A letter from Glenn:

Hello Everyone,

Being thankful in the good times is easy. It’s when times aren’t so great that we have our work cut out for us. Gratitude is a muscle, and in order to have a heart of gratitude you have to work out that muscle consistently, in both good times and bad.

It’s been a crazy week. I want you to remember something in the midst of the chaos: there’s always something to be grateful for.

Even as America is heading into some uncharted waters and peace has yielded to riots, looting, hate, anger, and vengeance- gratitude must win the day.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not ignoring or brushing off frustrating leaders and the disturbing news of the day. I’m just so sick of pointing to the fire – I’m ready to go grab a bucket, scoop up some water and extinguish it. I realize my bucket isn’t nearly large enough to put a dent in this flame but that’s exactly why I’m focusing all resources I possibly can on stories that give hope and inspiration. They inspire me to look for the good in a situation, and spur me to action. If that is true for me it is likely true for you as well, and that would mean millions more buckets helping to put out the fire.

We are to teach the truth and correct principles, but we can’t do that at the expense of actually living out those principles. How do we live them out? Act justly. Love mercy. Walk humbly. What does that look like, exactly? Glad you ask. I saw a perfect example last weekend in Ferguson, Missouri with the local Tea Party there.
A couple weeks ago I spoke with Lauren Hill, a young woman with terminal brain cancer. I can’t even begin to imagine what it must feel like to be given a death sentence at such a young age. If anyone has reason to complain, mope, and give up hope it is Lauren Hill. But she’s battling this disease with every fiber of her being. She was determined to play in a college basketball game, and the team had to adjust the schedule because they didn’t know if she’d live long enough to make it. Well, she made the game and she even scored the opening basket, which was an inspiration to millions. Many said that would be her last game, but Lauren wasn’t having any of that. Last Friday night, despite being too weak to practice for 2 weeks straight, Lauren appeared in her 2nd game and scored again. She collapsed to the floor after attempting the shot. Because of her efforts, despite suffering from constant nausea, vertigo, headaches, memory loss, inability to focus, weakness – Lauren has raised more than $350,000 for pediatric cancer research. Simply awesome. People like Lauren stop me dead in my tracks when I’m caught in a cycle of complaining:

Who am I to complain about my situation?

Who am I to complain about the partisan divide?

Who am I to complain about anything?

Thanksgiving is the beginning of what I like to call the trilogy of holidays and I love that Thanksgiving is first up because gratitude is so crucial to well-being. The problem with complaining is it accomplishes nothing and drags everyone else around down into the muck.

There’s no denying we’re living in difficult times. But while a life of comfort, completely void of adversity sounds pleasant, there’s actually a big problem with it. Mainly, it’s a complete and total lie. No human being in all of history has ever lived a life free of adversity, pain, sorrow, regret, and to pretend otherwise is an exercise in futility. Also, adversity reveals character – and how we handle adversity has immense power and influence on others. It can teach, inspire, and motive them. Look at people like Lauren Hill.

So this Thanksgiving I’m going to do my best to view any adversity I’m facing in a new light. I will not complain. I will be thankful for another opportunity to show other people that there’s another way, a better way, than what the world teaches.

I hope you do the same & continue to share your stories with me. They give me great hope, strength and faith.

Happy Thanksgiving,

-Glenn

Forgotten History: The true story of Thanksgiving
We all know the story of the first Thanksgiving…unless you’re reading this with a Common Core education. If so, you’ve probably been told that the Pilgrims were evil terrorists. In either case, chances are you’ve never heard the story of American history, faith, and heroism as told by Glenn Beck on radio Wednesday morning. LISTEN

Glenn shares what he is thankful for
Glenn headed up to his ranch to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with his family. The entire Beck clan is under one roof — with the four Beck children, granddaughter, and son-in-law — all joining Glenn and Tania for a big turkey dinner (which Glenn probably won’t be able to eat. Diet). He’ll be off radio for the next couple of days, but he’s still staying in touch on social media. This morning, Glenn shared photos of the scenery and landscape that are making him very thankful this Thanksgiving. PHOTOS

If you go Black Friday shopping on Thanksgiving, you’re part of the problem
“There’s nothing new about retail stores opening on Thanksgiving,” writes Matt Walsh. “This has been going on for a while, although godless, anti-American establishments like Macy’s, J.C. Penny’s, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Sears, and Target, have progressively moved their times up to the point where they will all be open for business between 5 and 6 pm on Thursday. Still, none of these amateurs can compete with Kmart, which will open its doors before dawn on Thanksgiving, and stay open for 42 hours straight…” Read the full piece HERE.

Mark and Roma Downey give Glenn (and you!) a sneak peek at their new project for NBC
Last year, Mark and Roma Downey stunned the world with their miniseries The Bible, an incredible TV event that followed the Bible from the moment of creation to the resurrection of Jesus Christ. Next year, they’re continuing the story with A.D. Last night, Glenn watched the extended trailer of the new show, and he was blown away. On this Thanksgiving Eve, watch the sneak peek and get Glenn’s reaction to what will surely be the biblical hit of 2015. MORE

Author Jason Wright describes the Christmas tradition that saved his family from a cycle of selfishness
A few years back, Glenn discovered author Jason Wright’s book Christmas Jars, an incredible story that spurred a new tradition in the Beck home and in homes across the country. You see, every day you collect spare change and put it in a jar. Then the week before Christmas, you find someone in need and donate the jar to them anonymously. It’s a gesture that can turn a person’s life around and break a cycle of selfishness around Christmas, just like it did for Jason and his family when they first did it. Jason shared the story with Pat and Stu on radio this morning. WATCH

Glenn: Ferguson ‘the very beginning’ of what will happen in America if we don’t change course
Last night, the grand jury declined to indict police officer Darren Wilson on any charges related to the shooting of black teenager Michael Brown.

On radio this morning, Glenn called for peace while also chastising those who would use the grand jury decision and the protests to further divide the country, including President Obama. LISTEN

Ferguson just the latest example of the dangerous Frances Fox Piven philosophy
Influential radical progressive Frances Fox Piven was so inspired by the Watts Riots in 1964 she created an entire strategy that centered around civil unrest and violence. Last yesterday’s events in Ferguson was merely an extension of this strategy, as instigators in Guy Fawkes masks and others made sure this opportunity to riot didn’t pass quietly in the night. Glenn explains on radio today. LISTEN

Her kid’s teacher said the pilgrims were America’s first terrorists
Every parent knows the importance a good education may bring, but the progressive indoctrination of America’s children has reached chilling new heights. For over a year, Glenn has been warning parents about the dangers of Common Core. History is being forgotten, and in many cases, rewritten. One mother, Cindy Vines, shared a shocking story with Glenn on radio this morning about her daughter’s teacher. Allegedly, the teacher not only told the kids they should only learn from their teacher, not their parents. But also, that the Pilgrims were America’s first terrorists.

‘The Constitution went on hiatus last night’ – Glenn reacts to Obama’s declaration
For the last six years, President Obama has made it painfully clear he believed acting alone on illegal immigration was not only illegal, but wrong. Last night, he made the bold declaration that he was acting unilaterally, without Congress, and doing what he felt he had to do. As the country braces for Ferguson, this couldn’t come at a worse time. Glenn reacts with a passionate monologue on radio today. LISTEN

There’s an amazing story behind this painting you may have never heard

A rare books collector exposed one of the biggest progressive cover-ups in history
How did a lost letter expose the deception of world famous author Upton Sinclair? America’s first real war on terror was against communist and socialist progressives that engaged in anarchist activity against the United States. In his novel Boston, Sinclair told the story of Nicola Sacco and Bartolomeo Vanzetti, two men who were tried and executed for murder. The two were heroes of the left, and Sinclair wanted to clear their names in his book. But he did so knowing that the opposite was true, and a forgotten letter revealed the truth. Paul Hegness found the letter and revealed the story to Glenn on radio. MORE

Has Bill Cosby been found guilty in the court of public opinion?
Does America still believe in “innocent until proven guilty”? That was a big question on the radio show, as the guys took a hard look at a series of rape allegations pointed at legendary actor and comedian Bill Cosby. In fact, one of the accusers, Barbara Bowman, has penned an op-ed for the Washington Post detailing her account of what happened between her and Cosby.
