What kinds of role models are these athletes?

Posted10/2/2017 1:00 AM

I'm so tired of hearing from professional athletes who make millions of dollars supporting players who refuse to stand up for our national anthem. It's time to stand up for America.

These athletes are role models for our children. What kind of example are you setting for these young minds who idolize professional athletes and see them kneeling during the national anthem?

If you disagree with the way the police are treating people then do something about it. Use your popularity and money to help that issue. Kneeling during the national anthem is not helping anyone. This is not a race issue or a political issue. This is our country. Our home.

There are so many wonderful professional athletes who use their talents to help people off the field as well. Please follow their footsteps. Be respectful to our country and all of the military who have given their lives for it. God bless America.
