Jones praised for stand on anthem

Posted

To The Editor:

Thank you Allan Jones for taking a stand against the NFL.

I've heard negative comments in Cleveland on First Amendment rights, freedom of speech, etc. 

I'm confused. Taking a few minutes to stand during our national anthem, I thought, was the American way of giving tribute to our fallen soldiers and the many others who put their lives on the line.

Am I wrong? Isn't that patriotism?
