This past Friday our nation was shocked as it witnessed one of the most heinous tragedies in the history of America when twenty young children and six adults were murdered at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.
This was the second largest mass murder tragedy in United States History and one of the deadliest mass shootings around the globe.
In a single moment the entire nation can be at a standstill. With this great despair comes a yearning for hope for all who are involved. Time and time again the National Football League steps up and becomes the glimmer of hope that so many people need. Football is America’s favorite sport, millions of Americans sped their Sunday’s watching their favorite team compete. In the past the NFL has done a great job of honoring other tragedies, they always step up and provide the temporary escape that those that are suffering need.
