To take a knee or not to take a knee that is the question!

  1. I have been reading and participating in the debate on social media regarding NFL players taking a knee during the national anthem.

Here is my conclusion: for those who are taking a knee in protest during the national anthem,  that is your right. For those of you who are  against taking a knee during the playing of the national anthem,  that is your right.   I believe that is exactly what makes America so great.

Each of us has a right to free speech and to peacefully protest. America’s greatness lies in that fact. The important part of the process is to keep speaking, keep the dialogue going. When people speak and other people listen that’s what brings about understanding, empathy and change.   But the important thing is not to change laws but to change minds. So keep your mind open and keep the dialogue going and be kind.  That is how America has been evolving over all of these years and eventually we’ll do the right things and come to the right conclusions. You’ll see!
