My ancestors fought in the Revolutionary and Civil Wars. My dad was a B-17 bombardier in World War II, was shot down three times and spent 14 months as a POW. I believe they were fighting for freedom — freedom of speech and freedom of peaceful assembly.

Best wishes to the members of the NFL and NBA teams peacefully protesting inequality and seeking justice. God bless the protesters, and God bless America.
