Our Prayers are with Uvalde

Partial Transcript:

David Bozell: Good afternoon folks. This is David Bozell. I wanted to say a few words about the Uvalde shooting. So, this will be a little bit more subdued, obviously, for the obvious reasons. And I really wasn't going to say anything, but then I saw some stuff floating around on the internet and I felt compelled to get behind the mic.

It's a little therapeutic, if I was going to be totally honest with you. I was thinking, you know how sometimes if you're a normal person that when you see something unimaginable happen and you sit there and you try to comprehend what that headline was what you just saw, the news report that you just saw, and your first thought is I don't even know what to say. And maybe those are your first words, "I don't know what to say."

Or when you come home from work after hearing about it during the day, and you see your loved one and you just have to look into their eyes...both of you know what you're thinking about. And it's so devastating, particularly for those of us who have children in their homes, young kids in their homes, or for those of you who have lost children. You maybe don't want to go any further in your conversation and you turn to maybe your kids and tug them close and hug them a little tighter.

And I actually had not heard about it, the Uvalde situation and the shooting, until yesterday evening. I was at the Washington Nationals baseball game and had just heard about it walking into the stadium. And then four minutes later, they were doing a moment of silence. So, I was still flipping through my phone to try to get caught up as to what had gone down.

First and foremost, my deepest condolences and ForAmerica's deepest condolences to the families.

Particularly, the moms and dads who have lost children, and obviously, to those families of the teachers who dedicated their vocation to teaching those kids day in and day out. We hope you find peace. We hope you can still find purpose and can find answers. And we hope in the next life you'll see your loved ones again. We know you will.

But normal people, it takes a while to get the words out and to comprehend what it is that you've just seen. And then, of course, you want to absorb as many facts as possible and get presented with the proper story.

But not the Left, I saw some of the chatter of the reaction from the Left, and I get that in fairness. I'll be fair, even though they're militant. And even though, and I'll give you some examples, basically:

They blame you,

they blame me,

they blame the Right,

they blame Republicans,

they blame conservatism,

they blame freedom,

they blame the Constitution,

they blame the gun,

they blame everything, but the shooter.

They blame everything or everyone that doesn't agree with them, but the shooter, they refuse to blame the shooter....

I'm a Catholic, so if we could just pray for the repose of these children's souls:

Father of all, we pray to you for these children, and for all those whom we love but see no longer. Grant to them eternal rest. Let light perpetual shine upon them. May their souls and the souls of all the departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
