I have to say this...The act of taking a knee while our flag is unfurled has become glamorous and celebrated. But in reality this act no matter how sincere the protestors are, dishonors and disrespects the men and women who died defending their right to protest.

My Dad and Mom (C.A. {Charlie} and Mattie Sims) ran a grocery store in Holdenville from the early 1930s to the mid 1960s. Before that they lived in Yeager during the 1920s. My three older brothers, Jimmy, Leo and Bill, were all born in Yeager while I was born in Holdenville. I was in my teen years before I found out that Jimmy’s name was really Charles Douglas. Apparently an old man in Yeager started calling him Jimmy and that stuck with him his whole life.

Alongside I-40 going into Oklahoma City is a large billboard informing passersby that a large percentage of Oklahoma’s children face a hungry bedtime. In other words, need food. When I saw it, I thought of the old “Feed the Children” programs picturing little skinny starving kids needing some food and we need to “give” some money. But this was right here in America and that disturbs me. In fact, I do not believe it. These programs may be running to take financial care of those who happen to be running them with feeding kids as a secondary factor.
