Glenn remembers his mother with touching Mother's Day message

My mother died when I was 15. We were close. She was slowly killing her self with drugs and alcohol. I didn't figure that out until about two months before she died.

She told my aunt the Sunday before she died that she was going to kill herself. No one believed her. By the end of the week she was dead.

I blamed myself for the things I did and didn't do, so did my sisters, my aunt, grandparents and my father.

None of us were responsible.

Suicide is a powerful lie. One in which you actually believe that what you are about to do is reasonable. People will be better off without you and more importantly - it will stop the pain in whichever form that comes in.

We were a shipwreck of a family for years. It has been just recently that we have all been able to talk about it and and what it has done.

We still have fears of becoming our mother and in a way, I think we all have some hope that we can become the best part of our mother. But the sickness ran deep in the family.

I was lucky. I was young and her favorite. My sisters were far to beautiful, talented, smart and successful to escape her sickness. She took her frustration out on them.

After she died it continued for all of us in other ways.

Again, I was lucky. I found an amazing woman named Tania that showed me what God can do. That loved me and cared for me and helped me heal.

She is a woman that believed in me when there was nothing to believe in and no reason to think there would be. At least that is how I saw it.

Tania saw past my mothers sickness, and The Lord healed me.

I am fortunate to have four wonderful children and I am finally becoming the man and father I was born to be. Because of a good woman, the mother of my children and the love of My eternities.

Today I celebrate her, and the woman who raised her my wonderful and dear mother in law, Mary Ann. I also celebrate my daughter Hannah who is new to this mother thing and is already outpacing most.

I also celebrate my sisters who are far better mothers than they believe, and woman who have grateful and decent children all of whom I love.

But I also celebrate my mother for not only the good memories that seem to grow harder and harder to retrieve, but also for the lessons she taught me in her sickness.

There is no bad. There are only things we love and experience. It is how we deal with them that makes us stronger or cripples us.

I choose to see the good and learn the lessons. I wish all could learn what my mother taught me. I am a better man because of it. If it weren't for her, I wouldn't have had my first two children and I wouldn't have met Tania who gave me the next two children.

'All that I am ... I am because of my mother.' Abe Lincoln.

During his campaign, President Joe Biden survived scandal after scandal involving his son Hunter — the Ukraine/Burisma scandal, the laptop scandal, the one involving a stripper from Arkansas and a long-lost child. And yet, after it all appeared to have been swept under the rug, Hunter has now released a memoir — "Beautiful Things."

Filling in for Glenn Beck on the radio program this week, Pat Gray and Stu Burguiere discussed Hunter's "horrible" response when asked on "CBS This Morning" if the laptop seized by the FBI in 2019 belonged to him and reviewed a few segments from his new book, which they agreed raises the question: Is Hunter trying to sabotage his father's career?

Countless corporations — from Delta Air Lines, Coca-Cola, and Porsche to UPS and LinkedIn — are calling out the Georgia voting laws, calling them "restrictive," "racist," and "discriminative." Meanwhile, words like "stakeholder" and "equitable" are starting to show up in their arguments.

On the radio program, Glenn Beck gave the "decoder ring" for what's really going on here, because our society is being completely redesigned in front of our eyes.

There's a reason why all these big businesses are speaking out now, and it has very little to do with genuine ideology, Glenn explained. It's all about ESG scores and forcing "compliance" through the monetization of social justice.

Glenn went on to detail exactly what ESG scores are, how they're calculated, and why these social credit scores explain the latest moves from "woke" companies.

Dallas Jenkins is a storyteller — and he's telling the most important story of all time in a way that many believed was impossible.

Jenkins is the creator of "The Chosen," a free, crowdfunded series about the life of Jesus that rivals Hollywood productions. And Season 2 could not have arrived at a better time — on Easter weekend 2021. Church attendance has dropped, people are hungry for something bigger than all of us, and many are choosing social justice activism, political parties, or even the climate change movement as "religions" over God.

This Easter weekend, Jenkins joined Glenn on the "Glenn Beck Podcast" to discuss the aspects of Jesus that often get overlooked and break through the misconceptions about who Jesus really is to paint a clear picture of why America needs Emmanuel, "God with us," now more than ever.

Award-winning investigative journalist Lara Logan joined Glenn Beck on the radio program this week to argue the Biden administration's border crisis is "enabling" drug cartels, allowing them to exploit migrants, use border wall construction roads, and cross the border much more easily.

Lara, who has witnessed and experienced firsthand some of the worst violence around the world as a war correspondent for CBS News, told Glenn it's "not an overstatement" to call the cartels in Mexico "the most violent and powerful criminal organizations on the face of the earth." And while they're "at war with us, we've been asleep at the wheel."

But Lara also offers solutions that the U.S. can enact to stop these horrific atrocities.

"There's more than 30,000 Mexican civilians who are massacred every year in Mexico by the cartels. And that's just the bodies that the Mexican government owns up to or knows about, right?" Lara said. "There's Mexicans buried in unmarked mass graves all across the country. I mean, everyone knows that the violence of the cartels is not like anything anyone has ever seen before. It even pales in comparison to, at times, to what terrorist groups like ISIS have done."

Lara went on to explain some of the unspeakable acts of violence and murder that occur at the hands of the Mexican cartels — 98% of which go uninvestigated.

"That's not unprosecuted, Glenn. That's uninvestigated," Lara emphasized. "[Cartels] operate with impunity. So the law enforcement guy, the policemen, the marine, the National Guardsmen, who are trying to do the right thing, who are not in the pocket of the cartels — what chance do those guys have? They've got no chance. You know where they end up? In one of those unmarked graves."
