To All Executives at NIKE:
I am a military mom, a Blue and Gold Star mom and I still have sons in the military. We are an Air Force family and have been all of our lives and US Navy as well.
I have spoken to many families and so have my sons to their comrades..in their squadrons.
I believe standing up for Colin Kaepernick was the right thing to do. I am neither a Republican nor Democrat but believe in the best person to be our CIC. My sons feel the same way as many other fighter pilots and their families do also. I also know Navy submariners' wives as I was in that family branch also.
Stand up for the people's rights to having their say and do not politics persuade you in a different direction . I own NIKE sneakers and am looking to get another pair for running...I am a forensic chemist and believe in the Freedom of Speech...people think the athlete's kneeling is political..It is not..It is about a person's intrinsic values and beliefs in what is right.
We teach our children to stand up for what is right and NIKE is doing what is right.
Unable to leave a personal e mail or number is sad..wish I could..thank you, though.
