Roadside chat between Seahawks player and veterans brings military wife to tears

Roadside chat between Seahawks player and veterans brings military wife to tears
roadside-chat-between-seahawks-player-and-veterans-brings-military-wife-to-tears
Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett shared an impromptu conversation with a group of military veterans outside Seahawks headquarters Tuesday. It came in the wake of protests by NFL players during the national anthem that has drawn the ire of the President of the United States and many Americans who say the players are disrespecting the military and the flag.

 and she thinks more conversations like it need to take place.,That moment Tuesday brought the military wife who witnessed it to tears and led to her own conversation with the player

 maybe,"I don't if it just felt like," Dayna Coats said., a glimmer of hope

 who lives right next to the Virginia Mason Athletic Center talked about it more on Wednesday.,Coats

Bennett has been one of the players who has protested all season during the anthem, President Donald Trump was talking about players like him during a fiery speech last week and a barrage of tweets since then calling on NFL owners who fire players who don't stand for the anthem. That led to more than 200 players taking a knee or refusing to come out of the locker room during the anthem., sitting on the bench during the ceremony. While he didn't call Bennett out by name

Coats said she saw a car stopped on the side of the road Tuesday morning and another in the middle of the road. A small crowd of people were standing nearby. She took a photo,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/jonathan-allen-jersey-cheap]Womens Jonathan Allen Jersey[/url], she realized it was a group of military veterans., thinking it was a car accident. As she got closer

" Coats said.,"The ones that I saw up-close seemed to be in their senior years... and probably seen some active duty battlefields

 who was headed to practice. Coats said Bennett saw the veterans and stopped to have a conversation.,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/fabian-moreau-jersey-cheap]Authentic Fabian Moreau Jersey[/url],One of the cars apparently belonged to Bennett

 Coats writes she saw Bennett and a veteran shaking hands and smiling.,As she drove by

"That image brought an unexpected wave of extreme emotion over me and I instantly and almost uncontrollably started bawling,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/samaje-perine-jersey-cheap]Authentic Samaje Perine Jersey[/url], adding she had to pull over to regain her composure.," Coats wrote

 was in the Army. My father-in-law was a Marine. My brother-in-law was a Marine. I have relatives who are police officers. It really,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/montae-nicholson-jersey-cheap]Authentic Montae Nicholson Jersey[/url],"As the wife of somebody who's been serving 33 years in the military. My father is a veteran," Coats said Wednesday.,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/colt-mccoy-jersey-cheap]Authentic Colt McCoy Jersey[/url], literally made me cry

That brought the veterans and Bennett to her car to make sure she was OK. That's when Coats said she told Bennett what was in her heart.

"I don't want to disrespect my country. I don't want to disrespect the flag. I don't want to disrespect my family," Coats said., my husband, too. He was very respectful, the rest of my family. And I want to hear. I want to listen, but I don't want to seem like I'm taking sides and I don't want to seem like I'm coming down on one side or another without understanding it all and I didn't understand it all. And so I was willing to listen and he spoke and I appreciate that. And he listened to me

She wrote that Bennett reached in and hugged her and that Bennett told her that he too has family in the military.

"The word unity was used several times and he admitted he didn’t know where to go from here. I do not know either. Nor do I know what the correct answers are… but I do know," Coats wrote., I am thankful for those veterans and thankful Michael stopped to talk with them…and inadvertently me

 even though they didn't all agree.,Seahawks receiver Doug Baldwin on Sunday said a similar conversation took place when the team met to decide what to do during the anthem before last week's game. He said everyone listened to one another

"The most beautiful thing about what happened was that those individuals were willing to put their own pride," Baldwin said.,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/jonathan-allen-jersey-cheap]Authentic Jonathan Allen Jersey[/url], their own ego,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/ryan-anderson-jersey-cheap]Authentic Ryan Anderson Jersey[/url], can do that as well, their own desires and wants and needs aside for the man next to them. And I hope that us,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/ryan-anderson-jersey-cheap]Womens Ryan Anderson Jersey[/url], as a country

Coats said she hopes this isn't the last encounter we see on this issue.

" Coats said.,"Everyone keeps talking about 'the conversation' and that's where this needs to go next

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman said Wednesday the team has yet to decide what it will do during the anthem this Sunday at home against the Indianapolis Colts. The team stayed in the locker room during the anthem last week.

The Seattle Seahawks made a post on social media Thursday that really riled up Kansas City Chiefs fans.

The Seahawks official Twitter account shared a photo of CenturyLink Field for National Poetry Day with a haiku that said the following:

Kansas City fans,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/fabian-moreau-jersey-cheap]Womens Fabian Moreau Jersey[/url], remembered that CenturyLink Field no longer holds the record for the loudest place for a football game.,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/samaje-perine-jersey-cheap]Womens Samaje Perine Jersey[/url], however

The Chiefs broke a Guinness world record in 2014 with a roar of 142.2 decibels at Arrowhead Stadium to dethrone Seahawks fans, set in 2013.,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/montae-nicholson-jersey-cheap]Womens Montae Nicholson Jersey[/url], who previously owned the record of 137.6 decibels

 Chiefs fans trolled the Seahawks Twitter account accordingly,Of course

 the Chiefs do not play until Monday evening against the Washington Redskins. So,[url=http://www.redskinscheapstore.com/colt-mccoy-jersey-cheap]Womens Colt McCoy Jersey[/url],In Seattle’s defense, Seattle would be the loudest team to play during Sunday Night Football this week., technically

 but Kansas City fans have never stomped their way to a magnitude 1 or 2 fan-generated earthquake.,And take this as you’d like

 but it’s good to see the two fan bases clashing in good spirits once again.,The Seahawks and Chiefs won’t meet this season to hold a roar-off
