We were taught early in school to pledge allegiance to our flag. We were taught to stand and place our hands over our heart for the national anthem. We learned as a soldier to value or present arms. An adult shows respect by removing a hat.

The pro football players could protest in another way instead of being ugly and disrespectful to our great country.

I was glad to hear the ratings were falling for pro football. Fans are burning tickets and refusing to watch. I will protest the teams by not watching.

God had blessed America and we need to bless him by being thankful and respectful.
