Good evening my fellow Americans. I had hoped when I became president I would not have to do this. Again

Another massacre, Uvalde, Texas. An elementary school. Beautiful, innocent, second, third, fourth-graders. And how many scores of little children, see their friends die, as if they're on a battlefield for God's sake. Gotta live with it the rest of their lives.  

There's a lot we don't know yet. But there's a lot we do know. 

The parents who will never see their child again. Never have them jump in bed and cuddle with them Parents who will never be the same. 

To lose a child is like having a piece of your soul ripped away. There's a hollowness in your chest you feel like you're being sucked into it. And never going to be able to get out.  Suffocating. And it's never quite the same. It's the feeling shared by the siblings and the grandparents and the family members and the community that's left behind.

Scripture says - and Jill and I have talked about this in different contexts, in other contexts - the Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.

So many crushed spirits. 

So tonight, I ask the nation to pray for them. 

And give the parents, siblings the strength in the darkness they feel right now.    

As a nation we have to ask, when in God's name are we doing to stand up to the gun lobby? 

When in God's name will we all do what we know in our gut needs to be done? 

It's been ... 3,448 days, 10 years, since I stood up at a high school in Connecticut - a grade school in Connecticut, where another gun man massacred 26 people, including 20 first-graders at Sandy Hook Elementary School. 

Since then, there have been over 900 incidents, gun fires reported on school grounds -  Marjory Stoneman Douglas High
