Glenn: It was a hard day...

Glenn has made a habit recently of doing late night Facebook posts. Sometimes he uses it to post pictures and update fans on what he is working on behind-the-scenes, and sometimes he uses it to vent about what is on his mind. Last night he wanted to vent. Really, really badly. But he stopped and decided to put himself in the shoes of his fans, and realized as frustrated as he gets, he has a lot more support than some people out there. He asked readers about how they get through the tough days - and there were some truly amazing responses.

"Last night about 11:00, and we had finally put the kids down to bed. Taken care of everything we needed to take care of. Straightened up the house, cleaned the dishes, finally just sat down. Tania was on the couch. I was on the couch and both of us kind of falling asleep back in forth in conversation. And I said, Tania, I just want to talk to you about some things that are just on my mind. So we had a good conversation. We went to bed. I decided to post something on Facebook. And this morning I got up and it was like 85,000 likes and I don't even know how many thousands of messages. But this is one I'm going to read all the messages, because they're unbelievable," Glenn said

"Now, if you read this, I had a change of heart at that period. Because I kind of came into it with a pity party. But I was thinking about you as I wrote this."

He wrote:

Hard day today.

Feeling kind of lost.

Questioning everything. Wondering how much is real and worth it beside family. Wondering how "normal" people do it. Work all day, come home while the other parent goes back out to their second job, raise the kids, do the shopping, pay the bills, take the kids to ballet or Boy Scouts, serve in the church, be a good husband and a good dad, study for work the next day, keep up with your loved ones - family, and dear friends and still reading scriptures and praying.

I have help and assistants and my amazing wife. Who do you have? I am sure, no one. Maybe you are a single parent.

Dear Lord. How blind and foolish I have been. Who am I to complain, judge, or feel tired? I am so sorry.

I do however want to know how do you do it? I am overwhelmed. It is funny, I can do a million projects at work, but I quickly get lost when it is the most important project of all - my family.

Maybe because I know the scars it left on us as kids. Or maybe because I have older kids and so I can see the errors I made and know that I have much left to learn.

Pray for me and I will double up on my prayers for you tonight. God is great. God is love.

From Dallas. Goodnight America.

Here are some of the responses:

Pamela N Chris Jennings: Prayers, my friend. I was at the end of my road once. It was right before Christmas. Whole world in the crapper. I started walking (I live in a rural area). I walked for miles. Came to the county courthouse area. Walked into the library for no particular reason. Picked up the first book off the 'new arrivals' shelf right by the door. Was really thinking about ending it all. Didn't even care about the book, just something to take my mind off for a few minutes. I read page one & didn't stop till the end. It changed my whole perspective. It probably saved my life. A sweet tale. It was called 'The Christmas Sweater'. Thanks, Glenn. I'll never be able to repay you, but thank you.

Tania Andrews: I am a single mother of 4 (8yo, 7yo, 4yo twins), I have 2.5 jobs and we live in a one bedroom condo. I drop the four of them off at two different schools (at least 10 miles apart) before driving to my job (30 mi from the last drop off). I used to secretly pray that God would send me a champion, a rescuer, a knight in shining armor to pluck me from my situation or at least come along beside me and help relieve some of the pressure. I've been learning that Jesus has been my rescuer, champion and knight all along. He loved me going into a dysfunctional marriage, He loved me when it turned violent and I left, He loves me and my children (and even their dad) still. I wake up with God daily, even the tough days and I cling to His promises and presence CONSTANTLY.

Julie Emler Haga: At 24 I found myself suddenly abandoned with 3 small children and another on the way. I had days when I was so overwhelmed I was sure I couldn't do it for one more day, but the sun still rose, the world continued on, and I did it once again. When I was at my lowest, my father said something I will never forget:"you can have today for your pity party, but I won't attend. The Lord never throws anything at us we can't catch and throw back." So I caught, and threw it back, eventually getting my GED ( I had quit school in the 9th grade) and then on to nursing school, graduating with a 3.98 gpa, thanks to my parents and the Lord's help. I guess my point is this: when it gets hard, there's no shame in getting overwhelmed, just remember that the sun will still come up tomorrow, giving you another chance to come as close as you can to getting it right, and if you need to drop to your knees and pray for guidance, it's ok, because we all need a little help sometimes.

Cory 'n Amy Brand: I am a minister just down the road from you. I was feeling much the same emotions you described. Then I read this scripture, it was encouraging for me hope it is for you.

Galatians 6:9-10 NIV

[9] Let us not become weary in doing good, for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up. [10] Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.

Kirsten Raye: Today the youngest of my four children went to the nurse at school, not feeling well. I was halfway to work at 0740 when I got the call to pick her up. When I asked, "Kylie....if you weren't feeling well, why did you even bother going to school today?", she responded, "I knew you had a meeting and I didn't want you to miss it, Momma". These are the invisible scars of the single parent; they ache in our heart. But I think there is something to be said of children who understand how torn we feel, and try to help in their own HUGE way. There's a balance we all find; sometimes we are in survival mode - there's no choice. But once we've overcome that storm, we get a reprieve filled with much cherished smooth sailing.

See the post below:

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"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?
