Social media has been filled with filled with opinions regarding the Nike ad featuring Colin Kaepernick. Many are in opposition to him and his stance and many applaud him. There are those who have proclaimed that he hasn’t sacrificed anything. Pointing to military and law enforcement workers as true sacrifices in this country. It’s quite disheartening to read but I would be living in my own bubble if I didn’t allow my eyes to read the words and hear the opinions of those who I vehemently oppose. I believe that history has taught us that by listening and trying to understand the views that do not necessarily align with yours, one can actually help in forging change. I’m instantly reminded of the Mahatma Gandhi quote “Be the change you wish to see in the world”. What kind of change do you wish to see?
