I have always been a supporter of standing up for the national anthem. I understand people have the right to kneel due to freedom of speech, but I have thought of this as disrespectful. The National anthem represents many things: our countries' past, patriotism, as well as the honor and gratitude...

Let me start off by saying I support women’s rights and equality in every way, shape, and form. But the Women’s March brought out people from all over the world not just for rights and equality, but for yet another anti-Trump bashing event. Freedom of speech is a key part of our society, as are...
