    Not sure if it’s ok to post this here, but this kid was one of the victims at the Florida school shooting. Apparently he was a big time Rockets fan, so thought it would be good to share this:

    That was fantastic of West Point to do this for him.
    He sounds like he was a great kid.

    We should raise some money and make a Wang Rockets jersey. Send it to his school

    Agreed. If someone starts up a gofundme or something in a separate thread we can raise the funds by the end of the day. Our subreddit would help as well.

    This is going to come off wrong but I don't want these type of posts in the GARM. Should be hangout or d&d if necessary. Sorry to be THAT person but Rockets are my love and my escape from reality. Flame away!

    If we are really doing this, what number should we put on his jersey?
    My suggestion would be 25, as he was admitted in West Point in '25 class.

    I don't know if this is a great idea, but if there is a way to reach out to his family we can ask them what his favorite number was.

    Maybe there's old photos of him wearing a baseball uniform of his favorite number or something.

    Maybe someone within the organization will see this, and get a real jersey made up with his name on it. Maybe someone can pass it along.

    I tweeted Tad and Daryl. They're bound to see it.

    I think it would be even better if we were able to get the Rockets to get involved.

    I was thinking about it as well. We got people here that has open doors to the organization, or even @Clutch has that shiny media badge :)

    I will stop overposting here, I really think we should do it. I just can´t take the initiative because in live in Brazil. Other than that, count me in in suggestions and my donation.
