Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure

From The Glenn Beck Show

Kirk Cameron stopped by The Glenn Beck Program last week to talk to Glenn about his upcoming documentary, Monumental: In Search of America’s National Treasure.

Monumental is a live event, hosted by Kirk Cameron. On Tuesday, March 27th 2012, in over 450 theaters nationwide, audiences will come together for this live, one-night event. The two-hour event will begin at 7:30pm ET, 6:30pm CT, 5:30pm MT, and 8:00pm PT (tape delayed), and is suitable for ages 13+.

While making this documentary Kirk Cameron came to many of the same solutions that Glenn has over the past few years. Kirk Cameron, father of six, is more than concerned with the direction our country is headed, and went looking for solutions within the founding of America. Solutions do not start in Washington, D.C. at the White House, they start in each and every one of our homes. Top down solutions will not solve America’s growing problems. First we have to fix our own hearts.

On GBTV Kirk Cameron said, “I think we’re all headed down the road to understanding that we can’t have this top down system. That ultimately it’s got to start within the heart. We’ve got to be breaking free from the chains that bind us into selfishness, and greed, and the lust, and for power, and all this; and begin serving one another, with faith in God, and loving our husbands, loving our wives, training our children, and having a long-term view of doing the right thing over the long haul, and eventually things will start to turn around.”

This documentary started as a quest for solutions to the problems facing our country, and to find out where we started going wrong. Kirk Cameron took a journey that traced the heroic travels of the early Pilgrims and the unlikely men and women who risked everything for liberty. This documentary will allow you to experience the stories of faith that guided education, government, and civil life in the early founding of America.

This morning on the radio show Glenn encouraged listeners to attend the live-event.

“He knows that America has to be restored. He is a dad. He didn’t know what the answer was. He heard about this monument where the pilgrims landed and had never heard of it. He went there at the urging of a historian because just about four or five years ago, he started paying attention. He was like, okay, there’s trouble. What’s going on with our country? We’re in real trouble and how do we fix it? He learned ‑‑ he felt that the first thing he had to do was restore history in himself and to his children,” Glenn said.

He added, “I urge you to go to and check it out. And then get your church and your like minded groups, your Tea Party group, your 9/12 project and go to the movie.
