PORTLAND, Ore. — On Sunday, a passerby captured an inspiring moment on camera, as Portland police officers took a knee with protesters in downtown Portland.
Some of the protesters got up to shake hands and high-five officers.
Ryan Ao said he was trying to get to his car which was parked in the area where a large, peaceful protest was happening on Sunday afternoon. He heard a lot of noise and went to see what was happening.
“I think we saw a historic moment happen just now, where all kinds of protesters were hugging and high-fiving police officers, who took a knee with the protesters,” Ao said.

… with the return of Colin Kaepernick, who’s better than many who have been playing all this time.
Hell, no... I'm not giving up...

I am happy to see this.
I would like to remind you that U.S. health insurance companies do not contribute anything to health care. They are only a PARASITIC middle man receiving an undeserved cut of "FREE MONEY".
