Today is Martin Luther King Jr. Day. That, of course, has nothing to do with the New York Giants or the NFL in general. A couple of Giants players who are extremely active on Twitter, and socially aware of the world they live in, took time this morning to tweet about Dr. King.
This isn't meant to do anything other than mark the day, and highlight the fact that these really are good people.
I cant take for granted the sacrifices others have made so we can thrive and live & not just surviveMLK was a visionary and a pioneer#MLK— Steve Weatherford (@Weatherford5) January 21, 2013
Hope the schools start teaching the kids about other great African Americans and not just the obvious ones.— Martellus Bennett (@1987Marty) January 21, 2013
If you are into Twitter, you can find Weatherford and Bennett willing to converse pretty regularly. Looking for a list of Giants' players on Twitter? You can follow the one put together by Pro Football Reference.
