Matthew McConaughey, who belongs to Uvalde, penned a note and said that "we need to re-evaluate and renegotiate our wants from our needs." Addressing the families of the victims, he also wrote, "No words can comprehend or heal your loss, but if prayers can provide comfort, we will keep them coming."
