Bennett makes important statement
As I watched the Seattle Seahawks’ game on Aug. 18, I saw Michael Bennett take a seat during the national anthem. Also standing by him was Justin Britt and Thomas Lane. I salute them, along with Colin Kaepernick, Doug Baldwin and Marshawn Lynch. In my view, we all should take a seat with regard to what is happening in America, what our government is doing and not doing to its citizens. To stand up for America, maybe we should all sit down.
