From my father’s Facebook (Fred Aranas)– commenting on the Kaepernick situation:
Did he burn the flag? Stomp on it? No, he just sat quietly on the bench. Do you realize how many people disrespect our flag by letting it fly in the rain, wearing it on their behinds and heads, and by not raising it at 6 am and not taking it down at 6 pm? And those who have tattered flags hanging on their homes or cars, if you can’t afford a new flag, then don’t fly one. Finally, if any of you are planning to burn your Kaepernick jerseys, don’t waste them, just send them to me, because he’s the Man!
