The New York Mets did something special Sunday night at Citi Field.
In a ceremony both emotional and uplifting, the Mets welcomed several hundred family members from ‘Tuesdays’ Children” , the nonprofit dedicated to helping the children who lost a father or mother. With a group of volunteers holding unfurling a flag that covered 90% of the outfield (John Williams , President of New York Guest was among the privileged who carried the flag), with a group of 93 bagpipers from several organizations and with First Responders from just about every spectrum ( Police, Fire, EMS, and even the Coast Guard) ringing the inside of the stadium, the crowd stopped, lit their candles, and as the lights of the stadium were dimmed, offered a moment of silence for those lost.
In the midst of an emotional day, the NY Mets organized an event that was appropriate, emotional, inspirational and most of all, helpful to so many family members.
Nice job NY Mets. Go Mets!!
