Contrast

 As we watched a retrospective about 9/11, my wife said, "What a contrast with the football players." I thought about the kneeling football players, all drawing significant salaries (much greater than what I've built up through many years of hard work), and those who--without thought of themselves--ran toward the danger. And I asked myself if we're not celebrating the wrong group.

Amen! And that's all I'm saying.

Patricia, I think you've done a good summation.
(It was telling, BTW, that not a word was said about it being the 19th anniversary of 9/11--just "BLM" on what I saw of the telecast).

I turned the game off as soon as the football addict left. lol.

Your pictures say a 1000 words.

I know what you mean. I never watch football anyway since I'm not a football fan.

Diana, Almost makes you wish you were a football fan, because your turning it off would be more meaningful. Thanks for your comment.
