And for those who have been talking about protests, just remember, this country was founded on protest. It’s called the American Revolution. And every step of progress in this country, every expansion of freedom, every expression of our deepest ideals, have been won through efforts that made the status quo uncomfortable. And we should all be thankful to folks who are willing in a peaceful, disciplined way to be out there making a difference.
