'Hopefully We Will See Change': NFL Player Sends Baltimore a Message
New Orleans Saints' player Benjamin Watson made headlines across the country last year when he wrote an essay on the Ferguson decision in November.
The NFL tight end has now just posted his thoughts on the riots in Baltimore and it's going viral.
So far, the Facebook post has been shared more than 13,000 times, and it’s gotten more than 33,000 likes.
Watson told Greta Van Susteren tonight that for the last year it's been "very disheartening."
"The events that have continued to happen really are making us turn inward as a country and see what's going on," he said. "There's so many issues that we have to address and this is just the latest and hopefully the last of these types of events that we'll see."
He stated that "only through a relationship with Jesus Christ is [how] we can really deal with these situations."
"When I see things like this happen, I really hurt because it is a heart change that needs to happen in America right now in order for us to be reconciled," he added.
Watson said that he thinks there is "great hope" in America, but "people are hurting and looking for answers."
"Hopefully we will see change and we won't be sitting here again in another week or so with the same incident just like this," Watson stated.
