2017 Letters to the editor stock

"The strongest man in the world is who stands most alone."

This became more apparent last Sunday when Alejandro Villanueva, of the Pittsburgh Steelers, did just that. He stood for the national anthem when the rest of his team wouldn't take the field.

Villanueva is a West Point graduate and a recipient of The Bronze Star for Valor for rescuing fellow soldiers under enemy fire in Afghanistan.

With society being provocative to elicit attention, Villanueva stood gallantly on the field, stalwart.

Villanueva made history. Villanueva was the strongest man in the world.

Aubrey Messmann, Hobart
