Caps VS Panthers

Standard

Last night, my husband & I watched the hockey game. Per usual, we watched the warm ups & opening.

Last night was intense to say the least. They began with a song & dedication to the fallen students & teachers of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.

Watching the photos of the fallen scroll by with their names, their ages & a very short description of them was heartbreaking. Watching the grown men of the Florida hockey team & the Florida fans in the crowd (the game was in Florida) cry had me in tears.

They had spot lights on the ice & in each circle was the name of a fallen person.

It was a tragically beautiful ceremony, not to mention the little boy who sang, “God Bless America,” since they haven’t been televising the National Anthem.

It was an incredibly emotional opening ceremony. But because of openings like these & the many, many other things the NHL does to support it’s community, I will be a hockey fan for as long as they are so amazing.

God Bless America y’all! 🇺🇸
