U.S. – Conservative radio and television host Glenn Beck recently told a Salt Lake City audience he could go blind in a year. As reported by The Upshot Yahoo! News blog, Beck stated to the crowd that he was recently diagnosed with macular dystrophy, and told by a doctor that there was a possibility of him going blind due to the disease.
Beck is quoted in the report as stating jokingly to the audience, “I said, ‘Did you just charge me a thousand dollars for knowing what I already knew my whole life? I think we know that at 3! ‘You might go blind someday. You might not.”
Beck is further quoted as stating in more serious tone, “I truly came to a place that is the greatest blessing… Lord, if you need my eyes, they’re yours. They were yours the whole time anyway. Thank you for letting me see as long as I have. That’s a blessing.”
