Check Out Damar Hamlin’s First Twitter and Instagram Posts Since His Collapse

Chicago Bears

Damar Hamlin is feeling the love.

And he wants to let you know it.

In his first social media posts since collapsing after suffering cardiac arrest in a scary incident during the Bills-Bengals game on Monday Night Football, Hamlin shared his thanks and asked for continued prayers to go in his direction:

As you’d expect, fans, teammates, and so many others have continued their outpouring of love and support for Hamlin in the comments on Instagram and Twitter. And it warms my heart to see it. Look … sometimes we get too caught up in the football stuff and lose sight of the human aspect of it all. So to see this continuous showering of love, prayer, and respect is wonderful to see. Maybe I’m a little oversensitive to it right now. Or maybe I’m in a place where I understand the importance of a tweet or IG comment showing love. It’s a small gesture, but not inconsequential.

Hamlin says in the post he still has a “long road” ahead. With that in mind, he should stay in our thoughts. And with that being said, hug a loved one next time you get a chance. It’ll make you (and probably them) feel better as they go about their day.
