A Day of Cold Rain, Warm Tears and Memories
Pedro Taylor made his way off the slippery turf at FedEx Field, the grass at the 50-yard line painted with a massive 21, the jersey number of his late son, Sean. The Washington Redskins' game against the New York Giants had not yet begun yesterday, and everywhere Pedro Taylor turned there stood a well-wisher, someone with a hug, someone else with a handshake. As he ducked into a tunnel, finally out of a driving rain, he looked up at some fans who had just watched him stride to a microphone and address a stadium about his son, who had died from gunshot wounds one year and three days earlier.
