I love seeing stuff like this. In any war you’re going to fight, you have to fight it together if you want to win.

It’s a lot like a football game. As David Pollack told me, you have a bunch of different guys executing different jobs for the betterment of the team.

I can’t think of a better way to describe the situation we’re in right now. Countless people are executing their jobs to the best of their abilities for the betterment of America.

We all have roles to play and we all have jobs to do. Healthcare workers are doing their jobs every single day by taking care of people who need help.

The stadiums lighting up is just a small way for the world of football to show our appreciation for all the pros out there saving lives.

Stay frosty, folks. Together, we’re going to win this war.
