  • As you certainly know by now, early Sunday morning,

  • there was another senseless shooting this time at a dance club, in Orlando, Florida.

  • A dance club.

  • It left 49 people dead, which is the largest loss of life due to a terrorist attack on U.S. soil since 911.

  • I know everyone is angry right now and not really knowing how to react.

  • But this is a time where people are looking to us as a country, and how we will react.

  • This country was built on the idea that we do not all agree on everything.

  • That we are a tolerant, free nation, that encourages debate, free-thinking, believing (or not) in what you choose.

  • I, as a new father, am thinking, "What do I tell my kids? What do I tell them about this?

  • What can we learn from this?

  • What if my kids are gay?

  • What do I tell them?”

  • Maybe there's a lesson from all this.

  • A lesson in tolerance. We need to support each other's differences and worry less about our own opinions.

  • Get back to debate, and away from believing or supporting the idea that

  • if someone doesn't live the way you want them to live, you just buy a gun and kill them.

  • bomb them up

  • That is not okay.

  • we need to get back to being brave enough to accept that we have different opinions, and that's okay.

  • Because that's what America is built on.

  • The idea that we can stand up and speak our minds and live our lives,

  • and not be punished for that.

  • Or mocked on the internet,

  • or killed by someone you don't know.

  • This is just one bad guy here.

  • 49 good people,

  • and 1 bad guy.

  • And there will always be more good than evil.

  • When I think of Orlando, I think of nothing but fun, and joy, and families.

  • If anyone can do it, you can.

  • Keep loving each other, keep respecting each other, and keep on dancing.

  • We'll be right back.

As you certainly know by now, early Sunday morning,
