Fan Asks Mike Rowe What He Thinks Of Nike Kaepernick Ad, Left Silent By Brilliant Response

Nike’s recent ad featuring football player Colin Kaepernick – known for starting the trend of kneeling during the playing of the National Anthem – has caused a huge stir and a great amount of controversy.
People on both sides have been weighing in with their thoughts about the ad, but one voice was noticeably absent: that of actor and television host Mike Rowe (known for such shows as Dirty Jobs and the CNN series Somebody’s Gotta Do It.)
One fan noticed Rowe’s silence on the subject and asked what he thought about it, and Rowe’s thoughtful and poignant response is one all of America needs to hear right now:
Nike’s free to celebrate whomever they wish, and Kaepernick is entitled to his opinion – kneeling, standing, or lying down. But if I was going to put someone’s face on a billboard – someone who epitomized bravery and sacrifice – I might have gone another way, especially this time of year. I might have gone with this guy – Tom Burnett.
Tom’s last act on earth was one of the most courageous things imaginable. And his last words to his wife, Deena, are among the most inspiring I have ever heard. Those exact words are at the top of this page, and the bottom. They were spoken seventeen years ago, under conditions I hope to never experience. I will never forget Tom’s last words. I hope you wo not either.
