This dude right here and so many that sacrificed before and after him, this dude is why I can't fathom how taking a knee is acceptable.
This dude is my 1st Phamily. If you want to stand, arms locked in solidarity, I'm with you. If you want to fight what is broken in our system, I'm with you. If you want to help make change and leave a better world for the next generation, I'm right there with you.
But if you choose to take a knee during an Anthem that honors every sacrifice that came before you to bring you the freedoms we take for granted every single day... I can not kneel with you. Nor will I stand beside you.
Too many have given far too much to dishonor their sacrifices for me. For them, I stand, hand over heart, thankful that I'm free.
To @derekweida and all of you that have served and will serve. I thank you.
