Dear NFL Players and Coaches,
We are fans of the game of football. We spend our fall/winter watching you play because we appreciate the skills you have spent most of your lives perfecting. We also understand that with these skills you have become very visible to everyone in the world, achieving fame, and with this fame, great responsibility.
Thank you so much for recognizing that when it comes to freedom and liberty for all, there is no "personal life" and "work life". Social justice encompasses both those areas. Freedom of speech gives you the right to stand up for injustice and inequality, and you should always take your right to do this. Always.
Most of us here in the real world are too afraid that we would become unemployed were we to behave in our workplace the way many of you are in yours. You inspire us to stand up for injustice even at a personal cost to ourselves. Thank you for showing us how to be the land of the brave.
The National Anthem is part of the the country we enjoy. It is your job, as an American, to stand up, sit down, take part, abstain, and do whatever it takes to uphold America as the land of the FREE and the brave. Do your job and continue to remember that when people of any country "keep their personal lives out of" atrocities can occur.
Your social statement, on and off the field affects positive change to bring communities together. Continue to stand up for equality and inclusiveness, and to not allow our president to foster more anger and divisiveness among us. We are all American, and no one should be punished for standing (or kneeling) in protest for injustice.
Your Fan (and a passionate advocate for liberty and justice for ALL)
