WATCH: The miraculous story of a man who jumped from the Golden Gate Bridge and survived. Now he dedicates his life to helping others.

In 2000, Kevin Hines jumped off the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco. But the second he was in the air, he instantly regretted his decision. As he hurtled headlong towards the water, he managed to turn his body so his feet hit first. The fall broke Kevin's back and shattered his vertebrae, but he survived. Today, he raises awareness for depression and suicide prevention. In the wake of Robin Williams' tragic death, Glenn invited Kevin onto the show to share his personal insight and struggle with suicide.

"Born addicted to drugs premature, from my infancy I fought to live. I grew up adopted in a beautiful home and yet at the age of 17 1/2 developed a severe form of bipolar disorder, Type I with psychotic features. One that lent itself to extreme psychosis, paranoid delusions, hallucinations both auditory and visual, terrible manic highs and awful depressive lows," Kevin explained.

Those symptoms led Kevin to the Golden Gate Bridge where he attempted to take his own life, he immediately regretted.

"It was the millisecond my hands left the rail I had what I call an instant regret," Kevin explained. "I prayed for my survival."

When he hit the water, he managed to fight through the pain and get to the surface. As he broke the surface and struggled to stay afloat, he felt something bump his leg. Eyewitnesses on the bridge claim a sea lion was circling and nudging him until the Coast Guard arrived to rescue him.

While he recovered both physically and mentally in the hospital, he met a priest who told him that he needed to share his story with others.

"He came to my left side and put his hand on my forehead, and he said 'Kid when you get better you have to talk about this,'" Kevin explained.

Kevin explained that the best way to help someone who is having suicidal thoughts is to ask them directly if they are planning to take their life.

"Statistically when you say that to someone who is in that much epic emotional pain, they tell the truth."

Kevin said that you then have to take the time to listen, without judgement, to what the person is going through. Then seek help through the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255.

"I believe we all go through what we go through for a reason and we all have a purpose. It sounds to me like you've found your purpose and I'm thrilled for you," Glenn said.

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?

Bill O'Reilly joined "The Glenn Beck Program" Friday to discuss a recent House Homeland Security Committee briefing on the impact of the 9/11 terror attacks, during which "national security experts" claimed "right-wing" groups pose a greater threat to the United States than groups like the Taliban or Al-Qaeda.

Glenn played two video clips from the briefing that showed Senior Fellow Brookings Institute Center for Middle East Policy, Daniel Byman, and former National Intelligence Council Chair during the Obama administration, Christopher Kojm, in apparent agreement that "right-wing extremists" are a bigger threat to Americans today than "jihadists."

"I'm someone who has written extensively on both jihadist groups, but also right-wing, white supremacist groups," Byman says in the first video clip. "And in my mind, there's no question that today in the United States, the right-wing and white supremacist violence is a much greater risk."

"I agree with your assessment and those of my colleagues who have spoken already, there's little doubt that the domestic terrorist threat from white nationalists and right-wing extremist groups is greater than the jihadist threat today," Kojm states in the second clip.

"Who are those idiots?" O'Reilly exclaimed. "It's just unbelievable ... they're not even in the same universe. Yeah, there are bad neo-Nazi Americans running around, yeah, but there are very few of them. I mean, the jihadists are causing death and destruction, death and destruction all over the world. Not just in the United States. These people are so blatantly irresponsible and ignorant, it's just staggering."

The Biden administration was recently caught lying about the White House dog, Major, and his history of biting Secret Service agents, according to newly released emails.

On "The Glenn Beck Radio Program," Glenn argued that, if the current administration is willing to lie about something so meaningless to the American people, what else are they willing to lie about? For instance, the State Department claims that there are only about 200 American citizens left in Afghanistan who want to be evacuated. But Glenn has heard very different reports from people on the ground. Is it safe to assume they're currently lying to us about all kinds of things — from the "new and improved" Taliban, to the number of Americans left behind in Afghanistan?
