~Eric Reid: Why Colin Kaepernick and I Decided to Take a Knee~

RESPECTFUL GESTURE

Sept. 25, 2017

In early 2016, I began paying attention to reports about the incredible number of unarmed black people being killed by the police. The posts on social media deeply disturbed me, but one in particular brought me to tears: the killing of Alton Sterling in my hometown Baton Rouge, La. This could have happened to any of my family members who still live in the area. I felt furious, hurt and hopeless. I wanted to do something, but didn’t know what or how to do it. All I knew for sure is that I wanted it to be as respectful as possible.

A few weeks later, during preseason, my teammate Colin Kaepernick chose to sit on the bench during the national anthem to protest police brutality. To be honest, I didn’t notice at the…

ODE TO JOY

A Little Girl Plays For A Street Musician And Gets The Best Surprise In Return

The video begins with a montage of shots in the courtyard outside the church, with groups of children playing and adults soaking in the sunshine.

Then the camera closes in on a cellist, who quietly watches as a young girl approaches. She raises a wooden flute to her lips and plays the opening notes to Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy,” and what follows is like a high-class, orchestral version of “Dueling Banjos.”

Independence Day, also referred to as the Fourth of July or July Fourth, is a federal holiday in the United States commemorating the adoption of the Declaration of Independence 241 years ago on July 4, 1776.

I’m finding it difficult to get in the spirit of things.

My therapist and I talk plenty about this topic. 

It’s been interesting and, not totally surprising, that two respectable, knowledgeable and amazing fellow bloggers have posted to the effect that this year the sense of euphoria, happiness and celebration has dimmed significantly.
