  • Good evening. We've all been coming to terms today

  • with the horrifically sad news and awful images coming out of

  • Las Vegas this morning, a crowd gathered together in unity,

  • enjoying a music concert, unawared that moments later

  • their lives would changed forever.

  • Their families, hearing the news that their sons, daughter,

  • mother, father or friend isn't ever coming home is something

  • I can't begin to imagine

  • To them and for the hundreds who survived but now face

  • battles with their injuries and memories, we are thinking of you tonight

  • We're also hearing stories of bravery and heroism, by the

  • resilient fans at the concert and the first responses and

  • medical professionals in Las Vegas.

  • People lining up to give blood, lines that started just hours

  • after the shooting.

  • cuz that's what people do

  • It's what they do in Manchester, it's what they did

  • In the pulse nightclub in Orlando last summer, it's what they do

  • in every city where a horrific attack takes place.

  • Those will be far greater examples pf true human nature

  • Than that shooter on the 32nd floor

  • Last night was the biggest mass shooting in United States history.

  • As the record that has been set twice in just the two and a

  • half years that I've been living in America.

  • Here's another statistic.

  • 11,660 people have died from gun violence in the last 275 days

  • in this country.

  • Now I come from a place where we don't have shooting at this

  • frequency see so it's hard for me to fathom

  • But it should be hard for everyone to fathom

  • Gun violence should not be a staple of American life

  • Some say it's too early to talk about gun control

  • For those victims last night, it's far too late

  • I heard today a commentator on the news explaining that there

  • is no real way to prevent lone wolf mass shootings like this

  • And forgive me, because I'm just a foreigner here and some of you

  • feel I have no place to say this, but how does every other

  • developing country do a better job of preventing these attacks

  • We can't be surprised that gun crime will always occur where

  • there is such wide availability of guns.

  • I saw a quote from Robert Kennedy that stayed with me today

  • He said that tragedy is a tool for the living to gain wisdom,

  • not a guide by which to live.

  • Now is the time for gaining that wisdom.

  • Somewhere, it has to stop.

  • Maybe the time for the thoughts and prayers of congress members

  • and the president have passed.

  • We need to look to them to actually do something to prevent

  • this from ever happening in the future.

  • In the mean time, we mourn those we lost and we think of those

  • who are suffering tonight.

  • As ever, even in these strange times we have a show to do.

  • Hoping that we can bring some lively to this, the most heavy days

Good evening. We've all been coming to terms today
