I am inspired by what is happening with the “Me too” campaign, and to some extent what has transpired with football players during the national anthem. I say to some extent, because to me kneeling during this time shows unrelenting respect for the flag and the country. I feel the objective of the protest has been taken out of context, minimized and belittled with righteous pettiness.
We are basically saying even though there is vanilla and chocolate, you can only choose vanilla, because choosing chocolate is the wrong thing to do.
This country is amazing and great because it was founded with the right to express opinions and thought with freedom and safety. What does it take for every single person to get that? Even the individuals expressing decent are using this principle. What is it about freedom and freedom of expression that naysayers aren’t getting?
