    • Hey Sophia,
      Thank you for sharing your thoughts with all of us. I recently read a CNN article that discussed the intricate ways in which this crisis can be solved. It has gone on for quite some time now as you acknowledged, but the possible resolutions have many variables that could go into permanently solving the problem. In order to fix this crisis, the government needs to fully commit itself to doing so in order to regulate these variables, and although it won’t be an easy task, it’s one that we need to accomplish so that the citizens of Flint can continue their lives. Here’s the article if you’d like to check it out!! http://www.cnn.com/2016/01/19/us/flint-water-crisis-whats-next/index.html

    • Sophia,

      I do understand all of the points you are getting. I understand that the flag has been represented for the military in which they did fight for our freedom. Taking a knee is a stand against inequality and discrimination. Its not that they disrespect the people who have fought for our freedom. I believe that they stand for more equality and love around the world. I do believe that they the take a knee has turned into something much different now. I think as of right now its just a argument against trump where it started to come off as inequality and discrimination. I understand where you are coming from and I appreciate this post. You have some really good comments and understanding.
