We live in a country where kneeling for our flag and Anthem is praised by the media and many in politics!! We hear America was never great. I say those saying that are taking their freedom for granted, and do not appreciate that so many have sacrificed so they could live free.
Most American families have veterans in them. Many families know someone who didn’t come back. The American Flag and Anthem symbolize freedom and that is why we take our hats off and cover our hearts as we face the flag and listen to those Freedom inspiring words.
The story behind the Anthem should be taught in every school in America. Much of our history is being re-written and has been for quite some time. I grew up when we were taught to love our country not hate it. This is shameful and for the NFL to condone it or not stop it is awful. They have the power Collin was at his job. The place he earns his paycheck. Try politically protesting at your place of employment during working hours. It is actually not a right and has been decided by the courts.
I have not watched an NFL game since this all started, under Obama. Trump “inherited” this mess of a very racially divided nation. Who divided us and started the Anti-American agenda? Along with the Anti- Police agenda?
I figured if many could give their all for me to be free I could give up the NFL for them! The flag and anthem represent that sacrifice so many made and that is why I stand, face the flag and put my hand over my hear Respect, and the opposite of respect is Disrespect!!
Here is how and why our anthem was penned. It is an amazing story of courage against all odds. I don’t think enough Americans know it. Please share and help spread this amazing story!!~RJH
