Letter: High school protests are wrong




The Sports section’s front-page story on Oct. 1, “Protests stir emotions,” said that local high school football players raised their fists during the national anthem.

In response to the NFL protest, I choose to exercise my freedom of speech by not watching or participating. No big deal.

With high school students, I can only express my protest in words. School athletes, management and staff disrespecting the national anthem and disrespecting our flag is wrong.
