‘Liberty and justice for all’ should be more than words
As a 97-year-old World War II veteran, I shall stand and salute the flag when the national anthem is played. However, I will continue to respect African-Americans when they kneel, not in protest of the anthem or the flag, but rather, in asking for a national dialogue over injustice, inequality and divisiveness that pervades America today. Until we have this dialogue and try to live up to the American ideal of “liberty and justice for all,” this country will never be great.
