I wanted to take this time to shoutout 10-year-old Liam Holmes, who decided to take a knee during the Pledge of Alliance while at City Hall in Durham, North Carolina. Full story here.
He was quoted saying, “What I did was took a knee against racial discrimination, which is basically [when] people are mean to other people of different colors.”
The silent protest was made popular by football star, Colin Kaepernick, who took a knee to protest against police brutality during a football game in 2016, which led to him losing his job as a player in the NFL at the time.
We can learn something here, as young Liam chose to kneel for racial injustices.
- Our children are watching us. Good, bad, or indifferent. They are watching.
- We must be cognizant of what we show and teach our children.
- What we pour into our children, they will show the world. They are a reflection of you.
Kudos to you, Liam! ❤
