#StandForOurFlag #Veterans

Now, legendary singer Gladys Knight is set to belt the National Anthem on Sunday, and she doesn’t care if anyone is upset with her decision.
“I understand that Mr. Kaepernick is protesting two things and they are police violence and injustice,” said the 74-year-old in a statement
“It is unfortunate that our National Anthem has been dragged into this debate when the distinctive senses of the National Anthem and fighting for justice should each stand alone.” @MsGladysKnight
“I am here today and on Sunday, Feb. 3 to give the Anthem back its voice,” declared Knight, “to stand for that historic choice of words, the way it unites us when we hear it and to free it from the same prejudices and struggles
"I have fought long and hard for all my life, from walking back hallways, from marching with our social leaders, from using my voice for good.”
“I have been in the forefront of this battle longer than most of those voicing their opinions to win the right to sing our country’s Anthem on a stage as large as the Super Bowl LIII,” she added.
“No matter who chooses to deflect with this narrative and continue to mix these two in the same message, it is not so and cannot be made so by anyone speaking it.”
“I pray that this National Anthem will bring us all together in a way never before witnessed and we can move forward and untangle these truths which mean so much to all of us,” said Knight.
Thank you @MsGladysKnight
@MsGladysKnight Her message is BEAUTIFUL ❤❤ So many MILLIONS MORE who STAND in SOLIDARITY with her & our FLAG as we HONOR the FALLEN, FREEDOM, USA 🇺🇸 God Bless The USA 🇺🇸
