Gretchen Carlson Uses ‘My Take’ Segment to Highlight Story of Bravery At Orlando Massacre

Screen Shot 2016-06-13 at 4.06.15 PMIn the past day and a half, since news of the massacre that took place at a LGBT bar in Orlando, Florida, broke, there has been very little to feel positive about. It is all that anyone is talking about and none of the angles pundits, politicians, and everyday people have chosen to speak from — religious radicalism, gun control, hate criminology — are exactly uplifting. Why should they be? 49 people were killed and we can assume that the majority of them identified as members of a marginalized community.

Today on The Real Story, Fox News’ Gretchen Carlson still tried to find a speck of bright light in the darkness that surrounds this story.

She told the story of Josh McGill to illustrate “the goodness of people in the face of horror.”

McGill, she reported, saw bartender Rodney Sumter stumbling in the parking lot. He stopped fleeing the gunfire inside the club he had just run from to help Sumter, who was shot in both arms and his back. He worked to keep the father of two conscious and even prayed with him.

Watch above to see Carlson tell the inspiring story.
