Football players often take a knee when someone suffers a severe injury on the field. An enduring expression of empathy amidst the combative intensity of the game.
Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the National Anthem in solidarity with African American victims of police brutality. His call for empathy was met with angry vitriol from a polarized society. His message co-opted by powerful interests to serve their own agendas.

#NeverAgain went viral the day after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, channeling America's frustration and anger at yet another massacre committed with an assault rifle.
