How the life and death of a woman in a ‘vegetative state’ changed Glenn’s life

Glenn attended a special event last night in Philadelphia to commemorate the 10th year anniversary of Terri Schiavo’s death. Glenn talked about how the women who he fought for but never really talked to changed his life forever.

"Last night, this audience - these guys were movers and shakers. This was an audience of over 800 people, I don't even know, that came from around the country that are standing for life. And I said to them at the end, there comes a time, there comes a time, and we're here now, that we just cannot be afraid. We can't be afraid and we can't sit down. We can't go over the cliff with the rest of society. We're going to be tired. We're going to be beat up."

"But I come to you - and listen to me because I'm saying this to you too - I'm coming to you as Mordecai. You were born for times such as these. You have everything you need. You have a calling. You have a purpose in life. Everybody does."

"Terri Schiavo. She changed me. I was sitting next to her sister last night at dinner. Suzanne. She's so wonderful. And I sat there with her. And I said, I know and you wouldn't feel this way, that, you know, 'hey, it was a good thing that my sister died', but look at what's come out of this.'"

"And she said, 'I have to tell you, we talk about that all the time. That because she died, all of these things have happened.'"

"And I said, 'I have to tell you, your sister changed the course of my career. Your sister, her life, yeah, it changed my life. It changed my life.'"

"And I think it's about to change my life even more."

"And a lot of people will say that Terri Schiavo lost. The same way that people say Dietrich Bonhoeffer lost. You could say that about Gandhi in a way. Gandhi died in the end. Where was his peace? He didn't. He didn't lose. He won. Dietrich Bonhoeffer won. Terri Schiavo won. Martin Luther King won. Abraham Lincoln won. They all won.

"We look at it in different terms. As humans, if it's us, we're like, 'don't do that! You're going to lose.' No. So you lose your job. So you lose your company. So you lose your life. And?"

"It's not so bad. It's not so bad. If we would just concentrate. You know, Plato said, seek the divine things, be the not the human things. C.S. Lewis, seek first things, not second things. Because if you seek the second things, or Plato said, if you seek the human things - you'll lose the human things and the divine things, and you'll be over."

It should come as no surprise that a newsworthy story receives more media coverage when released on a Monday than a Friday. The reason is in part due to a large number of news-consuming Americans checking out for the week to focus on their weekend plans rather than the news.

On Monday's radio program, Glenn Beck shared information that President Joe Biden decided to release on Friday — when fewer people would notice — regarding the Climate Finance report. This report is marketed to Americans as "A Roadmap To Build a Climate-Resilient Economy." But Glenn believes the report to be Biden's Great Reset warning shot to banks.

In this clip, Glenn warned that if Americans don't stand together, in eight years we all indeed will own nothing. Watch the clip for the full story. Can't watch? Download the podcast here.

On today's radio program, Glenn Beck was joined by Bill O'Reilly to discuss the top stories of the week.

For O'Reilly, the biggest story this week centered around someone mysteriously missing from mainstream media news reports today: Mark Zuckerberg. Specifically, O'Reilly said it's the 'scandalous' way the Facebook CEO spent nearly $420 million to influence the 2020 election — and did so successfully.

On Thursday's radio program, Grace Smith and her father, Andy, joined Glenn Beck on the phone and provided a first-hand account of Grace's refusal to wear a mask at school.

Smith, 16, began a maskless protest after her school district in Laramie, Wyoming, decided to implement a mask mandate. As a result, Grace received three suspensions, was issued two $500-citations, and was eventually arrested.

"How long were you in jail?" Glenn asked.

Grace said was taken to jail but was never booked nor was she was placed in a jail cell.

Glenn commended Grace's father, Andy, for raising such a "great citizen" and asked if it was Grace's idea to protest. Andy said it was Grace's idea, explaining that they took the position of arguing on the grounds of civil rights rather than the efficacy of wearing a mask.

Grace has since withdrawn from public school and started a home school program. She also told Glenn that she will continue to fight the school district, legally.

It seems the Left wants a civil war and some on the Right want a national divorce. The country is split right now unlike anything Glenn Beck has ever witnessed. There are two sides: Those who want to fundamentally change this country and those who believe in KEEPING the experiment of liberty that the Founding Founders intended.

The ideological gap seems impossible to cross, but Glenn explains why he won't secede. David Reaboi, Claremont Institute senior fellow and author of "National Divorce Is Expensive, but It's Worth Every Penny," tells Glenn why a national breakup is not an impossibility just because it will be difficult.

What can we do to fight back … peacefully? How can the states that still believe in the Constitution create pockets of freedom in the shadow of tyranny? On his Wednesday night special this week, Glenn answers that and provides a road map to preserving what the Left is trying to destroy.

Finally, James Simpson, author of "Who Was Karl Marx? The Men, the Motives and the Menace Behind Today's Rampaging American Left," provides solutions on the issues the "red states" must unite around before Left and Right America officially call it quits.
