"We need love, not hate. And we need that giant hug..."

Those were the words of Jeff Finkelstein, President/CEO of the Jewish Federation of Greater Pittsburgh during today's vigil at Soldiers & Sailors in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. He spoke just after the Pittsburgh Steelers defeated the Cleveland Browns 33-18 at Heinz Field.

Sports offer us a healthy, temporary distraction from life during times like these. It’s not for everyone. We all have our own ways of dealing with obstacles in front of us, many of which are emotional in nature for many Pittsburghers right now. It can also be a platform for change like what we’ve seen in recent years with Colin Kaepernick, Eric Reid, and others. But it’s many things for many people. Today, myself and approximately 68,000 people used football to help heal.
