Actor and Uvalde, TX native Matthew McConaughey spoke at the White House Press Briefing.
“This moment is different. We are in a window of opportunity right now that we have not been in before. A window where it seems like real change, real change can happen. Uvalde, Texas is where I was born.”
While discussing the victims of the recent school shooting, McConaughey’s wife Camilla holds green high-top Converse shoes of the one of the Uvalde, TX victims. “These are the same green Converse on her feet that turned out to be the only clear evidence that could identify her after the shooting.”
He also says, “Can both sides rise above? Can both sides see beyond the political problem at hand and admit that we have a life preservation problem on our hands?” And, “America, you and me, we are not as divided as we are being told we are. No.”
