Patriotic Boy In Wheelchair Struggles To His Feet To Stand For The National Anthem

Explained by Budwick...

Other than overpaid NFL players, most Americans feel it’s their patriotic duty to stand up when the National Anthem is played. Leah Norris of Tennessee was enjoying the Putnam County Fair in Cookeville, Tennessee, when she witnessed one little boy who took patriotism to a whole new level. As country singer Jenny Leigh belted out “The Star-Spangled Banner” from the stage, Leah witnessed 10 year-old Avery Price, who uses a wheelchair, struggling to get to his feet. Avery has hereditary spastic paraplegia (HSP) syndrome, a condition that’s similar to cerebral palsy. Although he recently had surgery to correct some of his issues with using his legs, he still uses a wheelchair to get around. Considering all this young man has been through, does it make you proud of the NFL jackwads that refuse to stand for the anthem?

Good for this young man, takes a lot of effort to do what he did. Of course we have fought wars for the freedom of speech and expression. That also includes the freedom to protest. The NFL has every right to kneel during the anthem if that is what they choose.

Good for him. But why would they even show this? There are a lot of people who will stand for the anthem, and there are a lot of people roaming around, buying snacks, on their phones, etc. And nothing is being said about them, only about the football players. And that's because Trump made a mountain out of a mole hill.

I will always stand for the anthem if it's possible. That's my right, and it's also the right of the NFL players to kneel if they so desire.

Starz, the story reveals that it was third party observer of the boy struggling to his feet to stand for the anthem and THAT third party being moved by it and subsequently posting it.

You can get more detail on her motives and feelings if your were to read the story cited in the Source.

Apparently, the people roaming around buying snacks, on their phones, etc. did not impact the the third party to a point that she felt compelled to mention it.

I'm delighted that you are likely to stand for the national anthem.

I'm appalled that NFL players are so self absorbed so as to dis their country by kneeling.

They aren't dissing their country at all. They have the right to kneel, stand the same as you or I do. We live in a free country, and that's what freedom means.

We kneel when we pray, are we dissing God because of it? I think not.

Again, none of this would have happened if Trump had stayed out of it.... but as usual the bully had to step in and cause problems....it didn't solve one thing, except prove that Trump is the proverbial bully.

This is going to come as a surprise then.
The WHOLE controversy is about the players disrespect of the anthem, country, military.

Whether the players have a right to disregard NFL policy or not has not been determined as yet.

The rights of American citizens including football fans, police, fire, military personnel who find the kneeling to be disrespectful is unquestioned.

Referee's have already ruled that prayer was a violation of the NFL’s rule governing celebrations.

No it wasn't, that's what Trump wanted you to believe, and you fell for it. One player knelt, was fired and that should have been the end of it. But Trump had to interfere for attention as usual, and it has now become a whole different subject.



I guess you're OK with Trump calling the NFL players...S.O.B's. What about Peyton Manning, or the other white football players.

Trump needs to be doing his job as a president, instead he's embroiled in scandal after scandal. Lies all the time, and if he was so concerned about the military, why did he take deferments.... he doesn't give a darn about you, me or our country. Disses John McCain, and now going after John Brennan.

I knew exactly what to believe back when Kapernick first took a knee - and so did the fans present at the game that incessantly booed his sorry ****. His BS story about protesting police brutality made no sense then and it doesn't today.
You go to a football game to protest?
He's paid was paid to play football.
He can protest on his own time.
He and all the other players had the whole off season to schedule protests and what ever. Some actually DID!
Not on the clock though. That is not the product the fans pay to see.

This isn't about Trump.
I'm OK with anyone calling the kneelers SOB's!
Don't disrespect my anthem and flag!

Tell me Starz, are the players so stupid so as to not understand that they are **** people off? Or do they not care?

Trump is not the topic of this post, but I am concerned about what Trump is doing! And all the flak he's taking for doing it!

I'm delighted with 99% of what Trump has accomplished. Friends and neighbors back at work, businesses opening, hiring people, working people with more money in their pockets, lowest unemployment numbers ever [in some sectors]. Unnecessary regulations that had been strangling business for decades taken out of the way. Unprecedented meetings with leaders of countries that have historically enemies, with the promise of peace on the horizon. Knocking a few heads around the world to wake them up to the unfairness of NATO and trade - also with promising futures. Judicial appointments out the wazoo! Good judges to follow the law and constitution!

Yes, he said 'pussy' 30 years ago in a private conversation. I can get over that.

Nearly two years of investigation by the best in the business have turned up nothing on Trump / Russia collusion and NOBODY can demonstrate how a single vote was changed. Now, the investigator made up a lot of stuff along the way, but none of it stuck.

Yup, Trump is a really good president in my book.

Yeah, those unnecessary regulations, like food safety have caused more recalls than I've seen ever. The trade war has cost soy bean farmers in the midwest to lose 50% of their income. In Ca, Kern county is one of the largest exporters in the country and the tariffs on table grapes, cherries, and almonds have farmers there have taken a 26% cut in their income. Prescription prices are going through the roof, insulin prices have gone up 500% since Chump became president. Some 26 yr old guy died last week because he couldn't afford the high cost of his insulin. What happened to trump and his promise to LOWER drug costs? Another lie? Glad you're happy bud, but there are a lot of people suffering due to trump's ineptitude, but I guess you're ok with that, as long as you are profiting.

The investigation started with collusion, but since it has turned up so many other criminal activities by trump and his band of felons, do you suggest they just be overlooked and not further investigated?
By your thinking, the illegal who murdered poor Mollie was here illegally, that should be what the story is. Poor Mollie's murder should just be overlooked since it is outside the scope of what you consider the real problem.

Don't play dumb with me, you'd have to be blind and deaf not to know what Trump has said about Charlottesville and the white supremacists.

I've noticed that every time I hit a nerve, the truth, then you start trying to demean me. I don't write baloney, I leave that up to you. You can't stand to hear the truth about your "beloved master" the most corrupt president we have ever had. And you being a Christian, how can you live with yourself, being OK with all the things that Trump has done. Shame, shame on you.

Yes, I know what he said, and I know the mischaracterization you are struggling to make.

On the day of last year's Charlottesville rally where a counter protester was killed, Trump made brief public remarks about the incident.

"We condemn in the strongest possible terms this egregious display of hatred, bigotry and violence on many sides, on many sides," Trump said.

"Racism is evil. And those who cause violence in its name are criminals and thugs, including the KKK, neo-Nazis, white supremacists, and other hate groups that are repugnant to everything we hold dear as Americans," Trump said.

He said there was blame on both sides and seemed to equate the actions of the counter protesters with those of the white nationalists.

"You had some very bad people in that group, but you also had people that were very fine people, on both sides," Trump said.

And THAT is what you equate with love of NAzis and white nationalists.

I've noticed that you rarely if ever include actual fact, quotes, citations. And when challenged, you rarely if ever include actual fact, quotes, citations.

I understand - you don't like Trump. I bet you can express those feelings AND include actual fact, quotes, citations to support your position and hold the baloney!

And, what's up with you blocking JohnW for upvoting the same comment YOU upvoted?

I could never understand why American's mix in the national anthem with entertainment. NFL isn't any different than artists playing in concerts, big screen movie stars, or even sports like Curling, Skiing, Beach volleyball etc ...

NFL is entertainment that involves some players that beat their wives, abuse drugs etc. Do you respect a player that stands during the anthem but abuses drugs and beats his wife? Cause there's a lot of them in the NFL, just saying.

The only thing I care about when i comes to NFL payers, is that when a receiver makes millions of dollars, he better catch that ball, because that's what he's paid to do. No different then when I go to a concert, they better put on a hell of a show, because that's what they are paid to do. Again, it's only entertainment, nothing more.

BTW, this statement was said by an Amiriter from the UK not long ago.

That's right, rev. Sports are just that....entertainment.
And the anthem is about the flag. How do all these protest protesters feel about the millions of folks that have flag clothing, businesses and homes flying faded and frayed flags, flags that are disposed of improperly, every day?
The anthem should be eliminated from all sporting events except when teams are competing for world cups or the olympics.

Exactly!!! I didn't want to offend my Americans friends with my statement, but I feel the same here in Canada. I don't want to sing or stand during our O Canada anthem at hockey and football games. I don't see the connection with those two sports and the flag.

I heard ESPN is concerned over their loss of viewership over the whole mess. They are considering their own solution - to not put cameras on the players or the field during the anthem.

That would kind of mask the problem. I mean it's still there, but only fans on site would see it.

Naturally everyone of those fans have phones so they could post stuff on line - but Twitter and Facebook can always censor any right leaning post - so I guess all the kneeling will still be available to see if you want to go to the trouble.

Except playing the national anthem isn't the point of comparison, it's the valorization of acts that don't actually do anything but show a devotion to the state in order to denounce anyone who expresses grievances.

DWF - you need to study up on your socialism. You know - you could gain rapid understanding of socialist principles in action if you were to take a two week vacation in Venezuela. If you lived, and were allowed to leave, you would be really smart on the topic.
