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?
