As overpaid divas in the NFL continue to disrespect our country by kneeling for the national anthem, they could learn a thing or two from this victim who was wounded during the Las Vegas massacre.
Thomas Gunderson was attending the country music festival in Las Vegas, Nevada, when shooter Stephen Paddock went on his murderous rampage, killing 59 and injuring over 500 people.
In the chaos, Thomas was shot in the leg, and was transported to a local hospital to recover.
President Trump and First Lady Melania, who were visiting the victims of the Vegas massacre, met Gunderson in the hospital, and his actions while meeting the First Family define American patriotism.
Despite being shot in the leg, Thomas Gunderson insisted on standing to greet President Trump and the First Lady with respect and honor, and made the rest of America proud.

From Gunderson’s Facebook.
I will never lie down when the President of this great country comes to shake my hand! There may be plenty of issues in this country but I will always respect my country, my president and my flag. Shot in the leg or not, I will stand to show my President the respect he deserves!
Gunderson’s courage and class should be a lesson for any NFL player or coach who disrespects the flag and the national anthem.
