WATCH: Dallas Eyewitnesses, Faith Leaders Discuss How to Move Forward

Martin Luther King, Jr. had this to say about violence in his 1964 Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech:

It is immoral because it seeks to humiliate the opponent rather than win his understanding: it seeks to annihilate rather than convert. Violence is immoral because it thrives on hatred rather than love. It destroys community and makes brotherhood impossible.

-- MLK 1964 nobel peace prize acceptance speech.

Monday on The Glenn Beck TV Program, Glenn was joined by faith leaders and several eyewitnesses to the Dallas shooting in which five police officers were killed. The group discussed what needs to be said and how we need to respond in order to move past the violence and reach a place of mutual respect and understanding.

Pastor Charles Flowers from Faith Outreach described the plans he had in place --- prior to the shooting in Dallas --- to address the shootings in Baton Rouge and Minnesota.

"When things like that happen, the community itself is gripped by fear and a whole bunch of other emotions. And if it lands where other verdicts have landed, in terms of a no-bill, that becomes the spark that starts things roaring all over the country," Flowers said. "Our desire was to get out in front of that and begin speaking to elements within our own community, even to prepare them for no-bills coming out of Baton Rouge and Minnesota."

Pastor Flowers also addressed the storm that's been building in the nation.

"If I were going to destabilize the country -- if I was going to destroy the nation -- I would do what I have seen systemically done in America the last five or ten years," Flowers said. "I'd stoke racism through media and the movies, I'd raise the angst and the hatred in the heart of people. I'd pepper it with these types of things that are happening around the country with shootings. And then, just let an emotional people destroy themselves. But if that's the case, then we have to not play into the hand of that."

Glenn readily agreed, but also voiced concern about achieving that lofty goal.

"Boy, I have to tell you there aren't a lot of people who don't want to. I mean there's a lot of people that just want revenge -- on both sides, both sides," Glenn said.

While our challenges may seem insurmountable, Pastor Flowers offered a light of hope.

"If you've been feeding on emotion, you're going to respond emotionally." Flowers said. "But not everybody. There is a remnant, a core of people who understand where we're going. If the course is not altered, this is not bad for a segment of people, it's all of us."

That statement rang true to Glenn.

"That's why you all are here. You know if we don't change this, we're done," Glenn said.

Loutina Turner, an eyewitness to the Dallas shooting, outlined a way to move forward.

"This has caused my city to grieve and if we would just embrace forgiveness, like you were speaking of earlier, a lot of this would not happen. We would prevent a lot of this and we would recognize it when we see it," Turner said.

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.

An Afghan interpreter who helped save then-Sen. Joe Biden's life in 2008 was among those stranded in Afghanistan after Biden's troop withdrawal. He has now escaped the country with his family, but not with President Biden's help.

Thanks to private organizations, including The Nazarene Fund, the interpreter and his family have now been rescued.

A shocking new report by The Daily Wire reveals that the furious father whose arrest at a school board meeting likely sparked the call for the FBI to investigate anti-CRT parents like domestic terrorists was furious for good reasons: The Loudoun County School Board allegedly tried to cover up his daughter's rape.

Rep. Chris Stewart (R-Utah) joined Glenn Beck on the radio program Tuesday to discuss the incident and explain why he joined 60 lawmakers in a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland demanding answers for why the FBI is targeting parents.

"We want to know ... what kind of coordination took place between the White House, activist groups and teachers unions, and the Department of Justice," Stewart told Glenn. "Because we have evidence that there was [coordination] and, in fact, that the White House are the ones who initiated this. They asked for these activist groups to write this inflammatory letter to the Department of Justice saying they were 'intimidated' and that they 'felt threatened', giving the Department of Justice Attorney General Garland, the excuse to say, 'Okay, well, we have to respond'."

Stewart went on to say he believes the federal government would only involve the FBI in such an issue if its purpose is to silence and intimidate parents concerned about the "poison" being taught to their kids in school. So, what can he and the other representatives who disagree with the Biden administration's overreach of power do to stop it?
