The Academy Award-winning actor Matthew McConaughey offers prayers for the families of the mass shooting victims in his hometown Uvalde, Texas.
After the horrifying school shooting that happened last week in Robb Elementary School in Uvalde, Texas, Matthew posted on Twitter to share his thoughts about the event that shocked entire America. The actor from Uvalde called on every American to take action to prevent something like this to happen again.
“Once again, we have tragically proven that we are failing to be responsible for the rights our freedoms grant us,” he wrote on Twitter. “The true call to action now is for every American to take a longer and deeper look in the mirror and ask ourselves, ‘What is it that we truly value? How do we repair the problem? What small sacrifices can we individually take today to preserve a healthier and safer nation, state, and neighborhood tomorrow?’”
The 52-year-old father of three is urging everyone to overcome these issues. Now that the children are now being victims of these terrible crimes, we should protect the innocent ones.
“As Americans, Texans, mothers, and fathers, it’s time we re-evaluate and renegotiate our wants from our needs,” he continued. “We have to rearrange our values and find a common ground above this devastating American reality that has tragically become our children’s issue.”
He then ended his statement by offering prayers to the family of the victims.
“To those who dropped off their loved ones today not knowing it was goodbye, no words can comprehend or heal your loss. But if prayers can provide comfort, we will keep them coming,” he said.
Let us continue to pray for those who are grieving and for the peace in the entire nation.
