Donald Trump said Colin Kaepernick was disrespecting veterans.
Rick Kyte, with whom I usually agree, infers that Kaepernick is protesting the flag (Oct. 7 Tribune). Neither is accurate.
Those of us fortunate enough to have grown up feeling safe in our surroundings might hesitate to criticize a man who has sacrificed a career for a cause that deserves our support.
I’ve always appreciated Rick Kyte’s adherence to The Ethical Life, but on this one, I’m taking a knee.
