CBS “Late Show” host Stephen Colbert urged viewers not to give up hope after a gun massacre in Texas left 26 people dead on Sunday. 

“Everyone is heartbroken when this happens and you want to do something, but nothing gets done,” Colbert said on Monday night. “No one does anything, and that seems insane and it can make you feel hopeless.” 

But Colbert urged viewers not to feel powerless. Ordinary Americans still hold the most important power of all: the power to vote.

And Nov. 7 is Election Day.
