Ellen DeGeneres “Message Of Hope” After Las Vegas Shooting – WATCH VIDEO
Ellen DeGeneres offers a “message of hope” on Tuesday’s “The Ellen DeGeneres Show,” during which she says that even though her “heart is broken” after the shooting in Las Vegas, she still believes that there’s “a lot more good in the world than there is bad.” The talk-show host notes that in the wake of the murders in Las Vegas and the hurricanes, including the one that devastated Puerto Rico, “it’s very easy to lose hope” and feel “sad,” but DeGeneres stresses, “We cannot do that” because “good will always win.” In addition to her “message of hope,” she also played a video of the good that’s been done by so many people who’ve been highlighted on her show. Watch the video below.
DeGeneres begins by saying, “I am very happy you are here today. I am hoping we can fill this room with love, and prayers, and hope. That’s what I want right now. This show is airing on Tuesday, but we are taping on Monday and we all woke up this morning to the news of the horrific shooting in Las Vegas.” She continues, “My heart is broken for everyone affected by what happened there. I mean, we were just in Las Vegas a few weeks ago and when you think of Las Vegas, it’s a place to escape and have fun and you never imagine anything like this could ever happen.”
The talk-show host then points out, “There’s so much going on in the world right now. People are recovering from hurricanes, the devastation in Puerto Rico and on top of all that, something like this happens. I don’t know about you, but I feel sad, I feel anxious, I feel helpless. And it’s very easy to lose hope, but we cannot do that. We cannot do that.” DeGeneres maintains, “I always say that there’s a lot more good in the world than there is bad and I continue to believe that. And that is what we have to focus on. I see it everywhere. You look in Las Vegas and people were helping each other. People lined up at 4:30 in the morning just to donate blood.”
DeGeneres admits, “It is hard to do a show on a day like this. When I woke up today, I think how am I going to do a show? But it’s also days like this that I appreciate my job more than ever because I get to focus and shine a light on the people that do good in the world.” She then showed a video of some of the “people who inspired” her.
After that, DeGeneres adds on Tuesday’s broadcast, “The world is full of amazing people. Good will always win. Love will always win. We will continue to shine a light on those people on our show. I am going to try to give you a show every single day. What we want to do is give you an escape from whatever is going on in your life, whatever is going on in the world, and that is what we’re going to do today. Today is going to be a fun day.”
