I do not think that is right for them to do that to get attention. They can honor our men and women that fight for us a diffrent way.

1 yes I do think that taking a knee is respectful cause it could honor people and it can stand for is someone gets hurt you are respecting them. 2 NO I don't believe that 8 year olds should be in a controversial issues because they are too young also there only 8 you should be like 15 to 60. 3 they could still be taking a knee but they could do the football and hockey and baseball way take of your hat or helmet and put there right hand o there heart but I mean there on 8 so that's only when you get to be a pro then you take off you helmet and stuff like that.
