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
