While highly paid and under educated NFL players continue to kneel for reasons they barely can explain or even agree upon, those who made it possible for them to act in such indulgent ways are dying. Those brave young men and women of WWII, Korea, and Vietnam are ceasing to be able to stand, not kneel, but stand and salute a flag of red, white, blue. As we remember them, and pause to fold the very flag the rich entitled under educated NFL players refuse to honor, so very many Americans will pause each and every time, allow for a rifle volley to sound, taps to be played, the flag over their coffin to be folded and handed to the loved family members remaining behind, words of appreciation from a grateful nation to be shared, a slow final hand salute, and possibly between tears and numbness the remembrance of true words spoken by former General of the Army Douglas MacArthur will be recalled: “Old Soldiers never die…they just fade away.”
