I find it amazing how we learn from history that we do not learn from history.

Today, we have peaceful, kneeling athlete-protesters being labeled as anti-American and called vulgar names by our president. I remember a great athlete named Cassius Clay who in the 1960s was labeled as anti-American and called vulgar names for his peaceful protest of the American military draft and the very unpopular Vietnam war. He refused to fight in a war he didn't believe in, and he was punished. Not very long ago, this same brave American, later known as Muhammad Ali, died a national hero.

How quickly we forget great lessons in heroism. - Richard Rosenbaum, North Sioux City, S.D.
