Taking the Knee

When I saw Colin Kaepernick take the knee during the National Anthem I recalled those days when Americans protested the War in Vietnam.  Those days when they fought for Civil Rights.

I recalled the days when police would fly into crowds, batons swinging, against unarmed peaceful protesters.

Today, I saw two videos, one from Portland, Oregon, and one from New York City, where police officers, on duty, took the knee.

They took the knee to show their solidarity with those who protested the murder of George Floyd. The murder of a Black Man by a White Police Officer.

When I saw it, I was  moved and I felt a change may have come.
