“First thing I said was, ‘Man I can’t believe this,’” Harris said. “At the same time, I just prayed to God and sent my prayers that way. For me, it could have been my son in that facility. It’s a sad thing but at the same time my prayers go out to the families and everyone that was involved.”
Harris said he was inspired by the actions of professional athletes like Tennessee Titan’s running back Chris Johnson. Johnson wrote the names of the 20 children who were killed in the shootings on his cleats. Harris said if he had a game, he would have done the same thing.
“I would write every name down,” Harris told The Oklahoman of those who were tragically shot last Friday. “I thought (what Chris Johnson did) was really unique and just showing respect to those people. I think that’s something that it hit everybody the same way. It’s a horrible tragic thing but you just pray about it and wish the best for those families.”
