Hard to Separate the Game From the Rocket’s Red Glare

New York Times, 9/7/16

This article is about Colin Kaepernick, a celebrated football player, who refused to stand for the national anthem before a game. He claims that iit is because of issues suck as police brutality and racial injustice in the US. I believe that even in hard times or when we may not agree with certain things happening within our nation, we must still respect it. Patriotism does not mean our nation is perfect, to me it means that we are willing to stand up and support the nation and do our part to help it along its way.
