My son is a big sports fan so the actions of Mr. Kaepernick over the last few days deserve a conversation in every home. This is a great teaching moment for mothers as you demonstrate the fact that decisions and relationships affect the course of human history.
Sadly, we've all had to read more than we wanted to regarding Kaepernick. I read up on him for no other reason but to try and understand "why" he had such disrespect our for our military. An article written by the Conservative Tree House reported some concerns that the media and the NFL will avoid in these discussions like the plague, but the Truth Has No Agenda.

The article reports that during the off-season Kaepernick converted to Islam. Colin Kaepernick is also engaged to Black Lives Matter activist and hip-hop radio personality DJ Nessa Diab.

George Washington Carver said "May God ever bless, keep, guide and continue to prosper you in your uplifting work for humanity, be it great or small, is my prayer.

Next time you use your PHONE for communication or pictures take a moment to remember the father of the telegraph, who is also the father of photography in American History!
