love him or hate him quarterback colin kaepernick started a conversation when he knelt for the national anthem... a conversation that landed him on the cover of time magazine this week.... and a conversation that spread to some valley football fields this weekend where some 6 year olds decided to kneel down for what they believe in. what does it mean to be an american... for some it means following long held traditions... but for this group, it means taking a stand, or rather a knee, to protest racial injustice...

" they watch everything they hear everything. especially in this day and age." coach macc tells me the players were eager to join
" do they understand why colin kaepernek is doing that, and he said yea they understand and we discussed it" " but there was a catch...the coach says while the kneeling did fuel a conversation, the kids were also on the recieving end of some pretty nasty comments." " saying these kids are thugs, theyre going to be in prison, or theyre gonna pick up a gun by the time theyre old enough" the coach tells me he understands why some don't think kids should be involved in heated political debates... but he's not one to silence eager minds that want to be heard... " it's about the way you make your voice heard... it don't have to be violent... you can make your voice heard in a real peaceful way, and speak loud and clear, and i think on saturday those kids did that..." more than a dozen kindergarten and first graders play for the red lions. every player took a knee during the anthem, and the players families support the gesture. mmv, ffn, ll it was a windy and dusty start to the first day of fall...
