Gary Lawson started this petition to Roger Goodell

Let nothing diminish the Star-Spangled Banner. The War of Independence is the reason we have the freedom to protest, to demand that things get better. Singing the Star Spangled Banner and putting our hands to our hearts at the beginning of professional sports is a thank you to the courageous men and women who declared our independence from England and all those who followed later putting on the cloth of our nation's military. 


Could we learn about each other, could there be a place for songs at halftime where celebrities teach us the words to Lift Every Voice, the Jewish celebratory song, Hava Nagila (Let us rejoice), as well as any number of Native American songs, etc. Sure. 


But, Goodell, don't you dare steal from us our love of our country. Don't divide us, "One Nation, Under God....INDIVISIBLE....." 
Stop dividing us.
