As four Miami Dolphins players kneeled in protest during the national anthem on Sunday, quarterback Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks held a much different demonstration.
Across the field from the kneeling players, the Seahawks locked arms in a “demonstration of unity.” The players were praised for making a bold statement while also respecting the U.S. flag and the national anthem.
Some of the imagery that emerged from the Seahawks’ demonstration was fitting on the anniversary of the 9/11 terrorist attacks.
Of course, the Military was in attendance as well.
