David Letterman has never backed away from speaking his mind, and days after one of the most tragic events in recent memory - he did not shy away from speaking what he felt.
Here's what he said:
“Since 1994, there have been 70 — and these are just school shootings — there have been 70, 70 episodes of school shootings in the United States since 1994,” he said. “And you think about, ‘Good Lord, really? Should there be that many?’…I would have thought, hopefully, once a year would be too many wouldn’t it?… Are we supposed to be worried about dropping our kids off at school now?… I never worried about it before. I always thought, well, school is a good place where my son will be free of the idiot decisions made by his father.”
We wish everybody had this man's courage.
It isn't easy to speak about something that has made so many people so very sad.
A moving statement from a beloved man.
