A football helmet isn’t going to make a large difference in the grand scheme of things, but it’s a nice gesture during a very rough time. Sometimes a humble gesture during a difficult time is a sign of hope, and a signal that things will get better.
The team will also have a tribute before the game to honor those who were killed and wounded.
