‘We pray for you’: Children of gun instructor killed in tragic accident offer powerful message of love

Late last month, shooting instructor Charles Vacca was tragically killed after a nine-year-old girl lost control of the automatic weapon he was showing her how to use. The 39-year-old father of four was an instructor at the Last Stop outdoor shooting range in White Hills, Arizona. Less than a month after the tragic accident, Vacca’s children have released an incredible message of love and forgiveness to the nine-year-old girl.

“Today we bring you a story of something that you never think of being good. Out of the ashes grow the roses of success,” Glenn said on radio this morning. “This is one of the most tragic things ever, not just for the man, not just for the man's family, but for the little girl. She will forever carry [that] around.”

The Vacca family’s attorneys - Marc Lamber and James Goodnow of Fennemore Craig – released the video message from the children late last week.

"We don’t know your name, but we are connected by this tragedy. In the news, we are just called ‘ the family,’ ‘the 9-year-old girl,’ ‘the instructor,’ but we do have names. Our names are Ashley, Elizabeth, Tylor and Christopher. We are Charlie Vacca’s kids. We wanted you to know something about him. Our dad wasn’t just an instructor. He was funny, strong, a protector, a hero and our friend. He was a good man.

"You’re only 9 years old. We think about you. We are worried about you. We pray for you. And we wish you peace. Our dad would want the same thing.

"Like you, we are living through this tragic event that we cannot shut off. It’s with us all the time. Our dad would want you to know that you should move forward with your life. You should not let this define you. You should love yourself and love your family. Someday we hope we can meet you, hug you and tell you that it’s okay."

“Their father is unbelievably proud of them,” Glenn said tearfully after listening to the video. “How beautiful. How remarkable.”

While the message is inspiring on its own, Glenn and Pat were particularly struck by the unbelievable maturity and courage displayed by the children in the wake of such tragedy. Furthermore, that forgiveness will hopefully, in time, ease the pain and uncertainty the nine-year-old girl is dealing with.

“To have that forgiveness, and that reaching out from that family, has to mean absolutely everything in her life right now,” Pat concluded. “That's got to be such a move of healing. They may have saved her life.”

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?

Taiwan's Foreign Minister Joseph Wu is now warning that his nation is preparing for war with China after Beijing flew a record number of warplanes over Taiwanese territory. Wu reached out to another country for help, but it wasn't the United States.

In a video, Wu urged Australia to help prepare for a possible invasion, but gave the U.S. no mention.

"The defense of Taiwan is in our own hands, and we are absolutely committed to that. And if China is going to launch a war against Taiwan, we will fight until the end. And that is our commitment. And, of course, during this period of time, we would like to exchange with other countries for security cooperation," Wu said on ABC News In-depth's China Tonight program. "We would like to engage in security or intelligence exchanges with other like-minded partners, Australia included, so that Taiwan is better prepared to deal with the war situation. And so far, our relations with Australia is very good. And that is what we appreciate it for."

On "The Glenn Beck Program," Glenn, Pat Gray, and Stu Burguiere discussed whether or not America would do anything during such a conflict — because it sure seems like President Joe Biden is more focused on working with China to fight climate change. Plus, why did China just cut off all cryptocurrency?

On "Glenn TV" tonight, Glenn Beck heads to the chalkboard to reveal how the fundamental transformation of America has already begun by turning the Declaration of Independence upside down.

If Donald Trump was a dictator, then what do we call President Biden? In Biden's first nine months in office, he has already issued 64 executive orders – that's more than Trump, Obama, W. Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan each issued in their entire first years in office.

You never hear the Left talk about the Declaration of Independence, the Constitution, or the Bill of Rights any more, unless it's to "reimagine" the Constitution or slap a "harmful content" warning on our founding documents. Seriously. The National Archives said while its website label wasn't targeting the Constitution specifically, "some of the materials presented here may reflect outdated, biased, offensive, and possibly violent views and opinions." The Left finds basic, guaranteed rights so offensive they now spend all of their time on workarounds to deal with America's annoying founding documents.

Watch the full episode of "Glenn TV" below to see Glenn outline the aggressive unconstitutional abuses "King Biden" is jamming down our throats and teaches Americans how we can defend against presidential tyranny.
