Thankful to be an American
Any time I see our American flag, I think how thankful I am to be born in America. I've spent nearly 30 years in service to my country. ...
Now we have some athletes taking offense for the flag that gave them the right to do what they are doing. Most of those kneeling don't have a clue. They are playing a game for crying out loud. A game and getting rich doing it. In a lot of countries they would be imprisoned or shot. Their beef is cops on black. Think about it, when a policeman says stop, it means stop. No discussion! Most, if not all of the so-called cops vs. blacks incidents were because the person did not obey the order. We don't have a policing problem, we have a problem in obeying a lawful order.
Let us honor our flag. Obey our police and work to make America the country that is a shining light in a very dark world.
