Glenn Beck Program May 30, 2011

In studio audience.

Preliminary Comments

  • Glenn thanks America’s veterans.
  • He asks the audience if they are spooked by half of what he says on the program.  About 75% of the people raise their hands.
  • He sad the reaction from people when he goes out is “Okay, Glenn we get it.  Now what?”
  • He tries to find ways to give people hope.
  • He discussed two stories that were featured previously in the news. 
    • In one, a woman was so disfigured, her children did not recognize her. 
    • In the other, a woman was disfigured when a man threw acid in her face.  She was upset when the government would not permit her to do the same to him.
    • One was filled by anger and rage.
    • The other had found hope and faith and God and love.

Stephanie and Christian Nielson

  • Stephanie is a 29-year-old mother of 4.
  • She lived through a horrible fire of an airplane crash and was burned over 80% of her body.
  • This program isn’t focusing on the fire or its physical aftermath.
    • Glenn wants to focus on how they are doing it?
    • How did they survive?
    • Who were they before?
    • Who are they today?
    • How can I do it?
  • Stephanie is the author of a blog:
  • She was in a medically induced coma for three months.  Christian was in a coma for six weeks.
  • They discussed their recovery and the reaction of their kids and others.
  • They decide early on that they are burn survivors, not burn victims.
  • After they woke from their comas, they both independently felt people’s prayers for them
    • Glenn remarked that he felt the same after the 8/28 Restoring Honor Rally.
    • He also noted that President Bush used to speak of this as well.
  • Their faith in God got them through this process.
  • Glenn commented on the book “The Survivor’s Club” ( ).
    • The author wanted to know what the survivors of various tragedies had that allowed them to come through their ordeals.
    • The number one thing was faith in God.
