You stand up for what you believe is right. When Nike released their campaign in collaboration with Colin Kaepernick using the verbiage “Believe in something. Even if it means sacrificing everything.” Veterans and patriotic Americans around the country immediately took notice. And for good reason, they were infuriated by the comparison Kaepernick made. To a military member and their loved ones the word sacrifice means much more than a football career. It’s something sever. Nine Line founder Tyler Merritt said “if you want to say that you’re promoting social injustice, then actually do something.” And that is exactly what he did. He took a stand for what he believed in. Quickly releasing the design “Just Stand.” The National Anthem is more than just a song before sporting events. It means so much more. It stands as a symbol of brave Americans who have truly sacrificed everything to preserve what they believe in. Freedom in America. Degrading this sacred anthem by refusing to stand demeans the sacrifice of countless men and women gave you freedom. Just Stand.
