Thanksgiving is a time to spend with family and friends and reflect on the things we are grateful for in life. A brief pause in the busy world to be with the one's you care about. The American Thanksgiving also adds another element. The tradition of NFL football all day, and all night. The second game of the day features an NFC East match-up between the Washington Redskins and the division-leading Dallas Cowboys. For Ty Nsekhe, a Washington tackle, it also marks a return to his home state of Texas. He made sure that this homecoming was a memorable one.
Nsekhe is donating 10 tickets for Thursday's game at AT&T Stadium to Dallas police officers and families who were affected by the tragic shootings last July. He stepped up and purchased all the tickets himself, "One day of joy. I don't know if they've seen a Cowboys game before. If they haven't, hopefully it's a good experience for them." Nsekhe met with the police officers and the families on Wednesday night. "At the end of the day, we're all humans. If everybody can get that basic fundamental that everybody is human first, we can make major steps forward. That's the biggest thing. Everybody has to recognize that we are all on this planet together. Hopefully I can do my part."
It really is an incredibly generous and thoughtful act by Nsekhe. We want to wish everyone in the USA a Happy Thanksgiving.
