Respect one another

Sit, stand, stay in the tunnel, lock arms, take a knee, it doesn’t matter to me.

Standing for the national anthem does not make one a patriot, kneeling does not make one unpatriotic.

What is patriotism?

I find it difficult to define.

Is it patriotic to hold the flag, while burning in protest a 1990’s team Starter jacket that no longer fits? I say no. Burning a new Antonio Brown jersey would be more impressive, albeit stupid.

I haven’t seen one of those videos on Facebook. By the way, the bumble bee Steelers throwbacks should be burned just because.

Enjoy the games or don’t. Let’s respect one another and God Bless America!
