“Prime Time Sports” of Colorado Sprints honors Veterans

honor_verterans

Colin Kaepernick may have started the kneeling in protest of America ‘s national

anthem, but Stephen Martin, owner of “Prime Time Sports” in Colorado Springs ,

Colorado has started a patriotic rising unlike anything that’s ever been done before.

Martin first took a stand when NFL player Brandon Marshall refused to stand

for the anthem.   Immediately, Martin canceled Marshall ‘s scheduled autograph

signing event in his store.  But he wasn’t done.   He replaced the star’s event

with something entirely different in his store, and in one week, it has grown to

epic proportions that he can hardly even keep up with now.

He put out a post on Facebook, respectfully disagreeing with the disrespect of the

nation’s flag and anthem, then proceeded to explain just what the flag means to him,

and the sacrifice of all the men and women who have fought for it.     Martin invited

people to send photos of their loved ones who are veterans, in active service, or who

have been injured or given their lives in the line of duty.

 

The photos started pouring in from all across the country, and as fast as they were

emailed, Martin printed them off and taped them to his store front window.  Americans

are sharing their photos and stories on his Facebook page, as well as sending to him

through email, and each day he has posted photos of the progress.

Schook the Malamute that loved Suzae by Suzae Chevalier

Suzae with Schook the Malamute

by Suzae with Schook the Malamute

Schook the malamute that did love

the cold feel of the bathroom tub.

He only liked Suzae besides the owner Steve

he was always by Suzae’s side

he did not leave.

He and Suzae got along real well-

almost better than her doll named Mel.

Schook was pure malamute and Suzae

would run another malamute one day.

She would walk him with TaShieka

and Dunkin was his name.

Now Dunkin, TaShieka and Schook

are passed on-

But they are still in Suzae’s heart

so they are not far gone.
