Sanu was handed this note before he left the plane.

“Hi! You don’t know us but we wanted to thank you. Our son sat behind you on this flight and watched you. He saw you studying your plays, watched you make healthy choices with your snacks, food and drink. He watched how polite you were to everyone. He is only 10 but just made an elite hockey team and we are on our way to training in Connecticut. You are an inspiration to children and for that you should be proud! Thank you and best of luck! 

The family that sat behind you”

Sanu tweeted a picture of the note and said, “This definitely put a smile on my face.  the little things.”

 

 

 

 

If you are curious, Sanu says he ordered a banana and a cranapple drink. 

Sanu is heading into the second year of a five-year, $32.5 million contract with the Atlanta Falcons.

It’s a reminder that doing the right thing matters- even when you think no one’s watching.
