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.
