Acts of terror that result in tragedy always produce narratives regarding the dark, chilling events that unfolded and those who were responsible for the evil doings, but they also have a way of bringing about stories of courage and caring among humans—often allowing us to somewhat restore our faith in humanity.

And now we have news regarding another good deed; this time from a current member of the New England Patriots.  We’re talking about newly acquired wide receiver Danny Amendola, who issued the following statement through his Twitter account:
