Patriots players take to social media to lobby for change following Texas school shooting

Following a mass shooting on Tuesday that left 14 kids and a teacher dead at an elementary school in Uvalde, Texas, several New England Patriots players took to social media to express their thoughts. Among them was running back Damien Harris, who shared a simple message in a tweet:

“We need change, now!”

Devastating. Heartbreaking. Unimaginable. Lord, watch over every single person affected by this continued evil. WE NEED CHANGE, NOWu203cufe0fu203cufe0fu203cufe0f

Offensive tackle Trent Brown and safety Adrian Phillips essentially echoed Harris’ remarks — “change” was a key theme in their tweets as well.
