Debate: Free Speech and Respect
Sep 25 2017
As we all saw during many of the NFL games on Sunday, there is an ongoing debate about the appropriateness of athletes choosing to take a knee during the national anthem in an effort to call attention to an issue they are passionate about.
The action rests at the intersection of valuing free speech and our 1st Amendment rights and the value of respecting our national anthem.
No matter how you feel, a productive discussion in a civil society starts with respecting varying opinions. So, I’d love to hear yours.
