How Do We Unite Again?

The song you hear every morning that kicks off The Glenn Beck Program was written by David Osmond, a friend of Glenn's. But not everyone associated with the project is a friend --- or even a fan of Glenn's.

"The people that are singing in this song, some of them absolutely hate my guts," Glenn said Wednesday on The Glenn Beck Program.

So what made them change their minds and agree to sing Glenn's new theme song? The lyrics and meaning:

I know we don't see everything in the same way

But I know we won't be really free if we don't stay united

'Cause divided we will fall for anything, it's true

So I have decided I'll stand for you

And I will . . .

I will make a stand

I will raise my voice

I will hold your hand

'Cause we are one.

I will beat my drum.

I have made my choice

We will overcome

'Cause we are one

"When they read the words of the song and said, 'This is what Glenn Beck is going to be talking about?' They said 'yes.' They all signed on. Because I think this is what people are really hungry for," Glenn said.

The song is about principles, and people coming together and lifting each other up despite their differences.

The version you hear at the beginning of the radio program is the original, featuring Jenn Blosil who made the Top 24 of this year's American Idol. But there's another version --- with children's voices --- that Glenn played last night on TV, following the events in Brussels.

How can we come back to a place to where we can be one? There used to be a time when our political differences did not define us. What's the secret to getting back there?

"There seems to be . . . no place we can go anymore. There's no place where you can actually have your opinion," Glenn said. "Have you been to Facebook? There's no place that you can go without being shouted down, without being threatened."

How do we possibly get back to a place where we can unite? By returning to principles and placing them above politics, parties and personalities.

"But that can't happen --- I can't beat my drum for you, I can't say we'll overcome, I can't join you --- if we don't have principles involved," Glenn said. "Otherwise, I'd be marching with Bill Ayers who is also not for Trump. I will not march with Bill Ayers. Why? I'm not one with him. Because I don't have the same principles.

So let's unite behind principles. If we don't find our shared principles then we will fall for anything --- and tear each other apart in the process.

Belgium is observing three days of national mourning after 34 people were killed in a twin suicide blast at Zaventem Airport and a further bomb attack at Maelbeek Metro Station. Two brothers are thought to have carried out the airport attack and an international manhunt is underway for a third suspect. The attacks come just days after a key suspect in the Paris attacks, Salah Abdeslam, was captured in Brussels. (Photo by Christopher Furlong/Getty Images)

As politicians and the mainstream media continue to insist that America is divided and at each other's throats, Dr. Ben Carson has a different message. He joined the "Glenn Beck Podcast" this week to discuss his time in the Trump administration and how we move forward and heal America. Overall, he says, we must realize "Americans are NOT each other's enemies."

Does parody even exist anymore? Filmmaker Ami Horowitz recently went to Yale University to ask students to sign his 'petition' to repeal the U.S. Constitution — and they actually did it!

Ami joined Glenn Beck on "Glenn TV" recently to describe how this wasn't just a few people — this was 65 percent of those he asked, and NO ONE seemed to think it was a bad idea.

The far left is tearing apart the social fabric of our country in the name of "progress." From its emphasis on government dependency, to the $15 minimum wage, to the embrace of Marxist Critical Race Theory in our schools, the Left is destroying our culture and way of life.

On Glenn TV this week, Glenn Beck spoke with Christopher Rufo, director of the Center on Wealth and Poverty, about the latest insane example of the Marxist lies destroying the minds of our kids: A New York school sent parents a "white identities" chart advocating for "white traitors" and "white abolitionists."

There is an all-out assault on the social fabric of our country. The kids are NOT all right. In the name of "progress," we're destroying their minds with Marxist lies. In the name of "safety," we're destroying their souls by keeping them locked down.

On his Glenn TV special this week, Glenn Beck takes on the national suicide that the Left is committing by destroying our culture and way of life and how it's also leading to actual suicide of our kids. Experts on the front lines expose how the lies of critical race theory are crippling our children's future and provide tools for parents to fight back.

Finally, Glenn hears from a parent who tragically lost his teen son, who took his own life due to COVID isolation. He has a powerful message for parents, teachers, and politicians who he says are failing our kids.
