Judging by two standing ovations, no one wanted their money back from Glenn Beck’s speech Saturday night at the Dahle Fine Arts Center. Beck spoke to nearly a full house of “malice towards none” and an abiding faith in the Christian commandment to love one another.

Glenn Beck unveils the remnant of an American flag flown at Normandy Beach. “This flag tells the story of people who went into the gates of hell, because it was worth it,” he told a nearly sold-out crowd at the Dahle Fine Arts Center in Dayton Saturday night. He urged people to know their history and said the flag illustrated the courage of past Americans to do what is right.
