How about we all take two knees tonight?

imageHow about the athletes and actors who earn millions each year switch experiences and pay checks with our veterans! I challenge these talented people to stop using their “stage” for politics.

I don’t care what you think of President Trump. I care that you are kind and that you use your platform for good. Taking a knee during the National Anthem to protest the President or giving a hate rant instead of an acceptance speech, does nothing to move us forward.

How about we all, including the President, take two knees before bed tonight and ask how we individually and collectively can be a light in this world.

A big special thank you to all military men and women for protecting and fighting for our country, for losing limbs for our freedoms, for battling hellish nightmares so we can sleep, and for dying so that we may continue to live. I apologize to all of you, past and present, who serve this great land, for the ignorance that has clouded your sacrifice.

May God bless all of you, and may all of us find our platforms to uplift and unite.

    Thank you for your comment. I truly am not trying to do what you are suggesting. I am advocating not using our national anthem and the sacrifices of our veterans as a platform for protesting the president. Personally, it does not make sense to disgrace our veterans and our flag because you feel offended or disgraced by the president. That is not logical to me. Two wrongs don’t make a right. Kind regards.

    So many ways to rationalize silencing others or ignoring violence and corruption.
