Memorial Day 2018

On Monday Americans will celebrate Memorial Day. Most think of it as the opening of the summer season but this holiday has a more serious meaning. It is a day to honor the memories of those who lost their lives in battle.  We honor the soldiers and sailors who died defending the United States.

Being a U.S. Army Veteran I am very sensitive to the issue of African American Sports players taking a knee for democracy.  Those many especially white Americans see this as unpatriotic I on the other hand see it as the height of Democracy.  The right to peacefully protest.  The American Flag is a symbol of what Democracy is supposed to be however most African Americans do not share the same rights, opportunities and access to uplift ourselves that our white counterparts take for granted.
