The Time To Kneel

H/T to Kelleigh Nelson for this item.  I have never been a fan of professional sports – highly overpaid, non productive individuals that need to grow upnot a lot different than all those mischaracterized *comedians* whose mouths are outlets for the cesspool content in their throats.   There have been a few worthy of being good role models for kids but most are models for drunken, druggy, immoral, law breakers. –   Jackie Juntti

The Time To Kneel

Very powerful message.

This might explain why many no longer watch the NFL, including our house.

Even though they cannot kneel in the upcoming season, they spoiled it last year and the year before for patriotic Americans, and there’s no going back.  Too little too late.

Subject: The Time To Kneel

I don’t think I’ve ever read anything more powerful than this piece.

It was written by Stanislaus Drew and Ted Nugent posted it on his
Facebook page – yes, THAT Ted Nugent.

Take a little trip to Valley Forge in January. Hold a musket ball in
your fingers and imagine it piercing your flesh and breaking a bone or
two. There won’t be a doctor or trainer to assist you until after the
battle, so just wait your turn. Take your cleats and socks off to get
a real experience.

Then, take a knee on the beach in Normandy where man after American
man stormed the beach, even as the one in front of him was shot to
pieces, the very sea stained with American blood. The only blockers
most had were the dead bodies in front of them, riddled with bullets
from enemy fire.

Take a knee in the sweat soaked jungles of Vietnam. From Khe Sanh to
Saigon, anywhere will do. Americans died in all those jungles. There
was no playbook that told them what was next, but they knew what flag
they represented. When they came home, they were protested as well,
and spit on for reasons only cowards know.

Take another knee in the blood drenched sands of Fallujah in 110
degree heat. Wear your Kevlar helmet and battle dress. Your number
won’t be printed on it unless your number is up! You’ll need to stay
hydrated but there won’t be anyone to squirt Gatorade into your mouth.
You’re on your own.

There are a lot of places to take a knee where Americans have given
their lives all over the world. When you use the banner under which
they fought as a source for your displeasure, you dishonor the
memories of those who bled for the very freedoms you have. That’s
what the red stripes mean. It represents the blood of those who
spilled a sea of it defending your liberty.

While you’re on your knee, pray for those that came before you, not on
a manicured lawn striped and printed with numbers to announce every
inch of ground taken, but on nameless hills and bloodied beaches and
sweltering forests and bitter cold mountains, every inch marked by an
American life lost serving that flag you protest.

No cheerleaders, no announcers, no coaches, no fans, just American men
and women, delivering the real fight against those who chose to harm
us, blazing a path so you would have the right to “take a knee.” You
haven’t any inkling of what it took to get you where you! are, but your
“protest” is duly noted. Not only is it disgraceful to a nation of
real heroes, it serves the purpose of pointing to your ingratitude for
those who chose to defend you under that banner that will still wave
long after your jersey is retired.

If you really feel the need to take a knee, come with me to church on
Sunday and we’ll both kneel before Almighty God. We’ll thank Him for
preserving this country for as long as He has. We’ll beg forgiveness
for our ingratitude for all He has provided us. We’ll appeal to Him
for understanding and wisdom. We’ll pray for liberty and justice for
all, because He is the one who provides those things. But there will
be no protest. There will only be gratitude for His provision and a
plea for His continued grace and mercy on the land of the free and the
home of the brave. It goes like this, GOD BLESS AMERICA!
