Julian Edelman channels Boston's resiliency in PSA on social media

Boston knows what it takes to secure a victory. The city and this region have seen this fare share of comebacks -- on and off the field. Somehow, it always seems to come back stronger than ever.

And Julian Edelman thinks this will be no different.

In a PSA he posted on Twitter, Edelman addressed the city directly.

"I know this is a crazy surreal time, something that we've never really experienced in our lifetime," Edelman said. "With spring coming up, we're so used to having Patriots Day, Marathon Monday, Opening Day, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, Passover. We have all these crazy awesome events that we have to adjust to and we have to do differently because of the circumstances we're under."

He urged people to stay inside and stay safe, emphasizing that it is crucial to move forward from the COVID-19 pandemic. While many people should stay at home, Edelman recognized that not everyone has that privilege.

"I honestly want to say thank you to the people putting their neck on the line out there, medical pros, our police departments, our fire departments, people that are delivering food, all these people," Edelman said. "It's crazy to see how we are all coming together to work together because of these circumstances and we have to continue to do that."

Channeling Boston Mayor Marty Walsh, Edelman said he knows we will get through this together, even while apart.

"Boston is a city built on comebacks. We're going to come back from this," he said.
