The final moments of last night’s episode of NBC’s This Is Us paid tribute to Pittsburgh’s Synagogue Shooting Victims.

The message that aired at the end of the episode remembered the 11 people that were killed during Saturday’s mass shooting at the Tree of Life Synagogue, which is said to be the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in U.S. history. 

“Our hearts are broken. We stand with our television hometown of Pittsburgh,” the message read. It then directed people to learn more about ending gun violence by visiting which is a website that advocates for ending gun violence and building safer communities. 

This Is Us is set in Pennsylvania city and during the show, the Pearson family often root for the Pittsburgh Steelers, and last season Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia’s characters even traveled to Pittsburgh’s Heinz Field.
