Good afternoon, 12s.
Here's a look at what's 'out there' for today – Monday, June 15 – about your Seattle Seahawks:
"March For Our Children Today, So They Won't Have To March Tomorrow"
Gathered in Mercer Island's Aubrey Davis Park, a group of hundreds listened intently to the powerful messages of prayer, hope, and justice led by Tiffany Chancellor and Nathalie Wright. Wives of Kam and K.J., the two women organized Saturday afternoon's event as a march in solidarity and justice for the #BlackLivesMatter movement. As the march made its way through the Mercer Island park, participants crossed the I-90 floating bridge and were met with honks and cheers from freeway drivers.
The march was attended by Seahawks Vice Chair Bert Kolde, Head Coach Pete Carroll, General Manager John Schneider, various Seahawks staff, Legends and families, and others in the community looking to make their voices heard.
"It's a great day for everybody to make a statement and support the whole cause. Today we walk with our family and our friends, but we also walk with a bunch of people that we don't know from a bunch of different places and backgrounds, you name it," Carroll said.
He continued, "All of us that are walking are walking because we're sharing a dream and have a goal that we share to bring about the respect and equality that all people deserve."
As co-organizer of the march, Tiffany hopes to continue the #BlackLivesMatter conversation going forward. "You got to get uncomfortable," she says, to continue having those conversations. "I felt like we had the whole power of the city behind us, it was really dope to have everybody come out and support and show that it matters to them."
Added Nathalie, the overwhelming feeling of having hundreds of people join the march was particularly poignant: "It was amazing. Just looking back and seeing the hundreds of people that were following my lead, with Tiffany and I."
Also participating in Saturday's march was Los Angeles Rams punter Johnny Hekker, who said "Blessed to be a part of the #BridgeToTheFuture walk today with our family. We walked across I-90 and back to lift up signs and voices believing that our future will be better for our children. Jett and our unborn baby girl will know that they marched with hundreds of people that believe #BlackLivesMatter."
