NFL teams wear decals on their helmets to honor Connecticut shooting victims
In the wake of the horrific, obscene massacre of 20 children and 6 adults in Newtown, Connecticut, several NFL teams pay homage to the victims by wearing decals on their helmets.
The NY Giants will wear the "S.H.E.S." --Sandy Hook Elementary School decals on the back of their helmets today against the Atlanta Falcons and the NY Jets will do the same. According to S.I.com The Patriots will send up 26 white flares, one at a time for each shooting victim, during a moment of silence before the start of their Sunday night home game against the San Francisco 49ers.
The NFL has asked home teams to observe a moment of silence in honor of the victims.
While we cannot bring the slain back to us, we can continue to pray for the grieving families and continue to honor those who we lost, but will never be forgotten.
Shout out to the NFL for reminding us we are a community and it truly does take a village. I applaud the teams for embracing those left behind. We can all do our part to help them heal and move on with their lives.
