Don Lemon issued a poignant, emotionally stirring message that condemned gun violence on Wednesday following a deadly high school shooting tragedy that killed 17 people in Parkland, Florida. The day to talk about gun control was “weeks, months, years, or decades ago,” the CNN host said in response to the several mass shootings which have taken lives in recent months.
“This is a sickness that has infected the country, unchecked and unfettered gun violence,” Lemon passionately expressed to viewers in the video below. “Today, 17 lives are over. Seventeen families are torn apart. Parents who sent their kids to school this morning—imagine that, many people send their kids to school—just like they’ve done every other day for years. They trusted their kids would be safe.”
He continued, “Teachers went to work this morning, trusted they’d be safe in their space, in their work environment. The way we all should be safe in our work environments, every day, everywhere in our schools. Our churches, our offices at concerts, at nightclubs. Do you feel safe tonight?” (Source: Praise Philly)
