The New York Giant's Tribute To The Newtown Victims.

The New York Giant's Tribute To The Newtown Victims.
By Paul Ring

The unimaginable tragedy at Sandy Hook Elementary will be honored by a minutes silence in every NFL game today and the New York Giants will wear the hand written decal in their helmets shown below.

Newtown is some sixty miles from New York and the Giants players in particular have been speaking about it. Tight end Martellus Bennet send out a series of tweets in the wake of the shooting:

Everyday i wanna up with the intentions to learn, to become better, to inspire, to learn as much as possible to be educated enough to make a difference. And I'm still learning.

It's bigger than football. It's about dreaming, encouraging, inspiring, imagining, loving, learning. Tackling the hate. Catching the love. Scoring in real life by encouraging change. Becoming a better person.

All I'm saying is be what you want to see in the world. Treat others how you want to be treated. Love instead of hate. Share instead of take. Hope for the hopeless. Dream for the dreamless. Encourage the discouraged. Instead of pointing at the person that is down open up your hand and help em up. Dust em off and say try again or it's ok keep pushing good things will come.

I will continue to gain knowledge so that i am smart enough to help out my peers. I expect the same from you guys. Let's step it up. And i apologize for not being knowledgeable enough yet to make a huge impact on the world, but i promise you i will.
