WATCH: Glenn shares important update about his health that will take him off air for July

Long time listeners may have noticed a change in Glenn's voice over the past couple of weeks. After consulting with doctors, he has been diagnosed with severe vocal cord strain resulting from overuse. Glenn's doctors have advised him to rest his voice over the next couple of weeks, and as a result he will be off radio and TV for the month of July. We expect him to return to the air on August 3rd, fully recovered.

During this four week period, Glenn will need to fight every urge to speak to give his vocal cords rest, and a selection of guests offering similar entertaining and enlightening points of view will host his radio and television programs.

Glenn will continue to stay in touch with you - the fans, viewers, and listeners - on his Facebook page and GlennBeck.com during this recovery period.

Below is the message Glenn shared on Facebook and radio today:

As you may or may not have noticed over the past couple of months, my voice has been changing a bit. Because I have had problems with my nerves in my vocal cords in the past where my voice has stopped working. I have been a little concerned, but I have really really great doctors, and this Friday I consulted with them and they have advised me to take a few weeks off and rest my voice due to some severe strain that has happened.

I know what I have to do. And I know how much work is left to do. And this is just another irritant in the long road of irritants. But its not going to stop me, and it's only going to sharpen my focus.

I intend on using the next few weeks on intensive study on figures of the past, on figures of courage, and figures of people who have really made a difference.

I also think this is going to be a great advantage for us as we get together for  August 28th and 29th in Birmingham, Alabama. Because of all the things I do, it is very hard for me to keep ahead of the game. This will give me a few weeks head start to focus on where we need to go next.

I have been talking about a lot of things in the past eight to nine years and have been warning about things like a caliphate, civil unrest, and a collapse of Greece - and we have now seen all of those things come to fruition.

I have also warned about the coldness of our hearts and the fact that we look for the speck in other people's eyes over the beam in our own. I am probably the most imperfect messenger on this, and I really believe this will give me an opportunity to do a lot of soul searching. To do a lot of reflection. And to, for the first time in about fifteen years, really listen more than I speak, which is a good thing for everybody.

I appreciate your tolerance, and all of the radio stations and television statements, and all of my partners in business for their understanding of this sabbatical and this time that doctors have told me I need to take off.

I appreciate you for sticking with us.

I know the staff has this weekend been working overtime on the thing that we can do to enrich us and keep us on track for where we are headed. They will be doing some really exciting things on radio and television that I think will help us. The time for looking and saying what is happening with the news is over. Now we need to start to say what's coming our way and what can we do about it - and that's where my focus is going to be.

I'm going to continue to stay with you on Facebook and everything in written form, but as of today doctor's have advised me to no longer speak for a while.

There's a lot of people in the world who are celebrating this, but it's only going to be for a few weeks. I believe it will humble me, it will make me a better man, and will perhaps teach me of the things that are worthy to be said, as I measure every word now that I can speak. I think this will be a very good thing.

I thank you for your prayers, your concern, your membership in TheBlaze. I thank you for that as you keep us going during this troubled time.

I will speak to you again in about a month.

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?
