Jj this might not matter, but I was beaten up tonight because I took up for a person I've never met.smh.I got a busted lip and 8 stitches defending you, and you will never even know my name. I understand you hear b.s. all the time but I cannot convey how shitty I'm feeling. All I want is a little accountability for gettin whooped. Not a thing is your fault but dam, I'm hurtin for a guy that I've never even met. I've never been to a Texans game, I was given tickets for the Chargers game on the 27 of November...all I wanna see is JJ in action. Lonnie Ballentine is a friend of mine and always talked about you with the highest regard.The only jersey I own is yours and Steve Young from like 20 years ago. My only wish is to be at 1 of your games. I want nothing free nor am I asking for you to endanger yourself. I don't even know if you'll read this but JJ... your my m.v.p.

I'm not sure how you personally feel about this but I know you have a huge voice that people will hear. This is my message that I'm hoping will get heard and understood.
I don't usually chime into political disagreements, especially on public media, but I recently got caught up in a conversation about the new Nike campaign and using the face of Kaepernick. I have stated that I am all for free speech and peaceful protest for things that we believe in but this taking a knee is so disrespectful to our flag and our military on so many levels. I recently posted a bit of history regarding our flag and why we sing the National Anthem before sporting events and I'm hoping that you can help me get this history lesson out to more of the public. It may be naïve or wishful thinking but maybe if people understood why we do this they would understand why it should stop. The following is a copy of my facebook post to family and friends. When one person said they don't understand how its disrespecting the flag or our military, this is what I wrote:
It has everything to do with the flag and our military and our National Anthem. The National Anthem was written by Francis Scott Key in 1814 after watching a British military bombardment of an American fort. Key watched from eight miles off shore through the night. In the morning the fort still stood strong with a huge flag still waving with fifteen stars and fifteen stripes, our Country was still young. In 1889, the Navy made it the official song to accompany all flag raisings. In 1931, President Hoover signed the law making "The Star Spangled Banner" the National Anthem. The tradition of playing the National Anthem before sporting events began during WWII to demonstrate support of American forces fighting in Europe and in the Pacific. So you see, it has everything to do with our military. Stand out of respect. Demonstrate racial ineqaulities in other ways people. I 'm all for free speech. That's one of the rights they fought for.

I have had AFIB for over 12 years. I have had two heart surgeries to contain it. One when found out I had AFIB and again once I got The jab in which my cardiologist said never get again. I have a great Cardiologist you might want to meet. People don’t understand how AFIB will effect them. It’s miserable and scary. God Bless you and keep up the good fight.
