A couple of days ago, a friend of mine asked “What keeps your faith in the world?”
It’s days like today. Seeing, of all things, NFL players taking a knee together during the national anthem today is what keeps my faith. After Trump said anyone who kneels should be fired… as if kneeling is any disrespect to the national anthem.
I don’t remember being so moved by football.
I honestly don’t remember being so proud to be American. Not about anything that happened in my lifetime. Seeing so many Americans kneeling against divisiveness. Kneeling to remind the country that too many black people are dying at the hands of police.
Seeing so many people back the kneelers, or at least stand up for their right to kneel.
I’m proud to see America finally show it’s true colors. It always takes a crisis…
