Dear Universe: I don’t know for sure. I think one thing and then another. Is kneeling during the national anthem offensive or in the spirit of what this country was founded on?

Universe: During business hours, you and your employer are under contract for you to perform a duty for compensation. It is not an appropriate place to conduct a protest if you expect to receive compensation. Nor is it an appropriate place to force propagandic salutes that elevate a set of peoples over the rest of humanity–a byproduct of separation consciousness. Anthems, flags, etc. are division personified. In the spirit of true freedom, participants should have the choice to opt out.
