America, Colin Kaepernick, and Fire: just-tea-thanks: venom1977: Take a moment to read this so you can fully understand. How it all started, and how we got here. (Unfortunately, the people that could learn something by reading this likely won’t bother). Did you know this? Aug 14, 2016- Colin Kaepernick “sits” for the national anthem…..and no one noticed. Aug 20th, 2016- Colin again “sits”, and again, no one noticed. Aug 26th, 2016- Colin “sits” and this time he is met with a level of vitriol unseen against an athlete. Even the future President of the United States took shots at him while on the campaign trail. Colin went on to explain his protest had NOTHING to with the military, but he felt it hard to stand for a flag that didn’t treat people of color fairly. Then on on Aug 30th, 2016 Nate Boyer, a former Army Green Beret turned NFL long snapper, penned an open letter to Colin in the Army Times. In it he expressed how Colin’s sitting affected him. Then a strange thing happened. Colin was able to do what most Americans to date have not… He listened. In his letter, Mr. Boyer writes: “I’m not judging you for standing up for what you believe in. It’s your inalienable right. What you are doing takes a lot of courage, and I’d be lying if I said I knew what it was like to walk around in your shoes. I’ve never had to deal with prejudice because of the color of my skin, and for me to say I can relate to what you’ve gone through is as ignorant as someone who’s never been in a combat zone telling me they understand what it’s like to go to war. Even though my initial reaction to your protest was one of anger, I’m trying to listen to what you’re saying and why you’re doing it.” Mr. Boyer goes on to write “There are already plenty people fighting fire with fire, and it’s just not helping anyone or anything. So I’m just going to keep listening, with an open mind. I look forward to the day you’re inspired to once again stand during our national anthem. I’ll be standing right there next to you.” Empathy and understanding was shown by Mr. Boyer………and Mr. Kaepernick reciprocated. Colin invited Nate to San Diego where the two had a 90 minute discussion and Nate proposed Colin kneel instead of sit. But why kneel? In a military funeral, after the flag is taken off the casket of the fallen military member, it is smartly folded 13 times and then presented to the parents, spouse or child of the fallen member by a fellow service member while KNEELING. The two decided that kneeling for the flag would symbolize his reverence for those that paid the ultimate sacrifice while still allowing Colin to peacefully protest the injustices he saw. Empathy, not zealotry under the guise of patriotism, is the only way meaningful discussion can be had. Mr. Kaepernick listened to all of you that say he disrespects the military and extended an olive branch to find a peace. When will America listen to him? We can all learn from this backstory. The truth often lies in the middle. Seek to learn the opposing side’s point. FUCKING THANK YOU! I HAVE BEEN SCREAMING THIS OUT TO CIVILIANS “OFFENDED” ON SMs BEHALF FOR WEEKS!

Being Alone, Best Friend, and Friends: Marleen Brooks 25 at 5:49pm . Came home to this note from a lady that lives down the street from me. Makes my heart sad, but on the bright side it looks ike I will be getting new friend When you're an adult, it's pretty hard to find new people, but imagine being elderly and havingno oneleft. That's terrifying. That's the situation that a 90-year-old woman in California found herself in, so she took a positive step to combat her isolation and loneliness. She wrote a note to a neighbour ん「 This is the note that Marleen Brooks came home to, It says Would you consider to become my friend. rm 90 years old-live alone. All my friends have passed away. I'm so lonesome and scared. Please -I pray for someone. In any case, Marleen wasn't going to let this letter go unanswered. She shared the letter. Then she made a plan to make a new friend. Marleen went out to grab some cupcakes and went down the street that evening to introduce herself. She brought along her best friend so that Wanda could meet two new people. She wrote again after her friend-making party Earier today I posted about how Marleen Brooks came home and found a nate from an elderly neighbor named Wanda. It said: Would you consider to become my friend I'm 90 years old- live alone and all my friends have passed away. I'm so lonesome and scared. Tonight Marleen (on the left with her best friend on the right] went over to Wanda's house and met her She brought her some cupcakes too. Afterward Marleen wrate to me about what happened: She's such a sweet lady! And she was over the moon when we came over. Wanda told me: 1 hope you didn't think I was stupid for writing you, but I had to do Thank you so much for coming over I've lived here for 50 years and don't know any of my neighbors." I also made sure that wanda knew she can call us at anytime and that be back to spend time with her! I'm sure Wanda and I wll have some great times. -Marieen Brooks I love this story And I'm so happy for Wanda But as I sald in my tirst post, there are so many others out there who are lanely just Eke Wanda. I would ask that maybe you consider knocking on their door and saying hi I know it would mean the world to them. And who knows, maybe you'll make a new friend Can you imagine living in one place for over 50 years and not krnowing anybody? I can't. That's too long to be alone, without anyone to talk to or to keep you company. Especially when you have the ailments that Wanda has. I cant imagine being in her position. We all need some compassion and kudos to Wanda for reaching out and asking for what she absolutely deserves. That's just about the best thing I've seen so far in 2017 Lonely 90-Year-Old Woman Asks Neighbor To Be Her Friend In Heartbreaking Note

 In any case, Marleen wasn't going to let this letter go unanswered.
 She shared the letter. Then she made a plan to make a new friend.
 Marleen went out to grab some cupcakes and went down the street
 that evening to introduce herself. She brought along her best friend
 so that Wanda could meet two new people.
 She wrote again after her friend-making party
 Earier today I posted about how Marleen Brooks came home and found a
 nate from an elderly neighbor named Wanda.
 It said:
 Would you consider to become my friend
 I'm 90 years old- live alone and all my friends have passed away.
 I'm so lonesome and scared.
 Tonight Marleen (on the left with her best friend on the right] went over to
 Wanda's house and met her
 She brought her some cupcakes too.
 Afterward Marleen wrate to me about what happened:
 She's such a sweet lady!
 And she was over the moon when we came over.
 Wanda told me:
 1 hope you didn't think I was stupid for writing you, but I had to do
 Thank you so much for coming over
 I've lived here for 50 years and don't know any of my neighbors."
 I also made sure that wanda knew she can call us at anytime and that
 be back to spend time with her!
 I'm sure Wanda and I wll have some great times.
 -Marieen Brooks
 I love this story
 And I'm so happy for Wanda
 But as I sald in my tirst post, there are so many others out there who are
 lanely just Eke Wanda.
 I would ask that maybe you consider knocking on their door and saying hi
 I know it would mean the world to them.
 And who knows, maybe you'll make a new friend
 Can you imagine living in one place for over 50 years and not
 krnowing anybody? I can't. That's too long to be alone, without
 anyone to talk to or to keep you company.
 Especially when you have the ailments that Wanda has. I cant
 imagine being in her position.
 We all need some compassion and kudos to Wanda for reaching out
 and asking for what she absolutely deserves.
 That's just about the best thing I've seen so far in 2017
