Without a husband, Lucy Ramos would likely have to start thinking about how she would raise a child by herself. That's where the New York Yankees came in. In an incredible act of generosity, the famous baseball team has offered to pay for her child's education:
A foundation founded by late New York Yankees owner George Steinbrenner reportedly will cover the education costs for the sons of one of the two NYPD officers murdered in a daylight ambush Saturday afternoon.
The New York Daily News reported that the Yankee Silver Shield Foundation will pay for the education of Officer Rafael Ramos' 13-year-old son Jaden and another son who is in college.
Although she is in mourning, surely Mrs. Ramos felt comforted by this unexpected and pleasant surprise. Truly, a class act.
The murderer's decision to fire on these innocent police officers will be remembered as an act of cowardice, which was stirred on by a culture of anti-cop mentality following the unpopular grand jury decisions in Ferguson, Missouri and New York. I pray this fatal incident will encourage protesters to put down their hateful signs, and go home.
I'll leave you with this sweet, yet heartbreaking Facebook post from Jaden:
"Today I had to say bye to my father. He was their [sic] for me everyday of my life," the post read. "He was the best father I could ask for. It's horrible that someone gets shot dead just for being a police officer. Everyone says they hate cops but they are the people that they call for help. I will always love you and I will never forget you. RIP Dad."
