During The National Anthem

Satisfactory Essays
I once tried to convince a friend that the NFL players that were taking a knee during the National Anthem wasn't right. He told me that they were doing it for the people that don't have a voice and that they they are more likely to get results that anyone else. I should have said, “I don't care if they take a knee or not but do it before or after the Nation Anthem not during it.” This would have established some common ground and it would have been a good compromise. I instead said, “They shouldn't knee at all because it's disrespectful to our country and all the people that have served and are currently serving to keep the US safe.” That response wasn't going to bridge the gap; all it was going to do is make us want to favor our side more.
