On Tuesday’s episode of “The Ellen Show,” which was taped on Monday just hours after the deadly shooting in Las Vegas, Ellen DeGeneres asked her audience to not lose hope, and to remember that there is still goodness in the world.
“I don’t know about you, but I feel sad, I feel anxious, I feel helpless,” said the daytime TV host. “It’s very easy to lose hope, but we cannot do that. 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.”
To provide comfort for her viewers, DeGeneres played a six minute montage of people who have appeared on her show who do good in the world — from simple acts, like a diner waitress serving breakfast on the house to two firefighters, to a crowd of people lifting a burning car to rescue a man trapped underneath.
“The world is full of amazing people,” DeGeneres reassured her audience. “Good will always win. Love will always win.”
