President Obama: 

“Weekly Address: Nation Grieves for Those Killed in Tragic Shooting in Newtown, CT”

Published on Dec 15, 2012

The President says the nation’s thoughts and prayers are with those who lost a loved one during Friday’s tragic shooting in Newtown, CT.

“Weekly Address: Nation Grieves for Those Killed in Tragic Shooting in Newtown, CT”

“On Friday, we learned that more than two dozen people were killed when a gunman opened fire in an elementary school in Newtown, Connecticut. 

Most of those who died were just young children with their whole lives ahead of them. And every parent in America has a heart heavy with hurt.

Among the fallen were also teachers – men and women who devoted their lives to helping our children fulfill their dreams.

So our hearts are broken today. We grieve for the families of those we lost. And we keep in our prayers the parents of those who survived.  Because as blessed as they are to have their children home, they know that their child’s innocence has been torn away far too early.

As a nation, we have endured far too many of these tragedies in the last few years. An elementary school in Newtown. A shopping mall in Oregon. A house of worship in Wisconsin. A movie theater in Colorado. Countless street corners in places like Chicago and Philadelphia.

Any of these neighborhoods could be our own. So we have to come together and take meaningful action to prevent more tragedies like this. Regardless of the politics. 

This weekend, Michelle and I are doing what I know every parent is doing – holding our children as close as we can and reminding them how much we love them. 

There are families in Connecticut who can’t do that today. And they need all of us now. Because while nothing can take the place of a lost child or loved one, all of us can extend a hand to those in need – to remind them that we are there for them; that we are praying for them; and that the love they felt for those they lost endures not just in their own memories, but also in their community, and their country. 

Thank you.”

“WASHINGTON WATCH: Gun Violence Among Black Men”

Published on Dec 10, 2012

“Gun violence takes the life of a young African-American man every five hours. It’s the leading cause of death for black men under the age of 35. And in Chicago, President Barack Obama’s hometown, it is the epicenter. Yet, gun violence among black men rarely makes the national agenda and is hardly discussed outside the black community.
The numbers are staggering. More than 4,680 black men between the ages of 15 and 34 were murdered, primarily from guns, in 2010. That is far more than from car crashes, AIDS or suicide. Imagine nearly 5,000 black men in a college. That’s what we’re talking about there, folks. It’s nearly twice the rate for white men the same age.
Experts identify several reasons for the crisis: poverty, cheap guns, broken families, confused ideas about manhood. But the solutions, including more social services and more police, haven’t stopped the bloodshed.

Chicago is home to several violent street gangs. It is bracing for its deadliest year, with black men as the primary victims. The city has recorded more than 400 homicides through November — more per capita than in Los Angeles and New York. But no Chicago youth is entirely safe. A University of Chicago study indicates that, perhaps, as many as one out of every five youths shot to death was a bystander who wasn’t the shooter’s intended target.

“There’s a shooting here almost every day,” says one South Side Chicago neighborhood activist. “They feel, I think, that no one cares.”

The issue of black men and gun violence burst into the national conversation last week when Jovan Belcher, a pro football linebacker for the Kansas City Chiefs, killed his girlfriend — shot her nine times — and then killed himself in the team’s parking lot.
Can the attention paid to this story lead us to some answers on the tragic intersection of guns, young black men and death?

Joining me to examine the problem and talk about solutions: Dr. Steve Perry, host of “Save My Son,” shown right here on TV One; and Dr. Chuck Williams, director of the Center for the Prevention of School-Aged Violence at Drexel University.”

“Bill Moyers Essay: Living Under the Gun”

Published on Jul 20, 2012

For more go to billmoyers.com

“In a web-exclusive video essay, Bill Moyers says Friday’s deadly shooting in Colorado is yet another tragic indication that our society — and too many of our politicians — covet guns more than common sense or life itself. The National Rifle Association in particular, Bill says, “has turned the Second Amendment of the Constitution into a cruel and deadly hoax.””
