It is exciting to watch the Olympics and see our contestants compete. If they are good enough to win first place and earn a gold medal, it is thrilling to see them receive their medal, stand at attention, place their hand over their heart and mouth the words to the National Anthem.

Isn't it a shame that our president can only stand and look bored while the anthem is being played. If you plan on voting for him in November, I suggest instead that you accompany him to Kenya and salute their anthem.

I'm a senior citizen that gave up a few years of my youth and some blood for my country that I love.
