Some of you may know that I'm a pretty big fan of Glenn Beck. (Glenn has an AM radio talk show, a CNN show, and has written a few books. I agree with most of his opinions about the state of our country and its politicians, I get his sense of humor, and I love his storytelling skills. Check him out at www.GlennBeck.com.) So for me, it was fun to be able to meet and see him a few times this past week in Provo.
Last Sunday, Glenn was the keynote speaker at the Freedom Festival's patriotic service in the Marriott center. Because Steve, my father-in-law, is a county commissioner, we were invited to a reception before the service where Kent and I briefly met Glenn and Kent thanked him for the introduction to the band Muse. (I couldn't tell you what any of their songs are. I listen to AM radio, remember.)
We saw Glenn again as he rode past on parade route on July 4th. Kent got him laughing when he started shouting a fan's praises to the Becks' body guard, Adam.
And we saw him a fourth time when he hosted the Stadium of Fire. I love the patriotic spirit he contributed to that event. Thanks Beck!
