FoxNews’ popular conservative radio and television talk show host has recently learned that his vocal chords are temporarily paralyzed, leaving him unable to speak. Doctors expect that the condition will come and go; but Beck expects to regain his voice soon. For now, unable to voice his thoughts on Monday’s show, he resorted to using black and red markers to tell his viewers what he wanted to say.
And it was powerful!
Estimating that he had said roughly 89 million words on the air since the show began in 1979, Beck wondered how many of those words were really important, really meaningful, really worth saying.
And what, he pondered, would he want to say when he regains the ability to speak?
Using note cards and music, Beck delivered a moving monologue—without saying a single word. He talked about Family and School and Job and Church, about God, about Honor and Courage and Love. He reflected on how much he had changed in the years since the broadcast first aired.
And he posed a question for us all: “If today was the last day you had a voice, what would you say?”
