Tammy Duckworth posted this picture on twitter. It is the best post I've seen in several days. [View all]

"One day, our nation’s flag will drape my coffin, just as it did my Dad’s and will my husband’s and brother’s. I will always stand on these legs for the flag and anthem, but it was ALSO my honor to defend people’s right to free speech..... including those who choose to #TakeAKnee to express outrage at the glaring disparity in how Americans of different races are treated"
