Stevie Wonder knelt Saturday night on stage, but it was for a whole different reason than the NFL players.
Wonder was singing at the Global Citizens Festival when he decided to take a moment to talk about the controversy concerning the kneeling that has been popular these couple of weeks.
“Whenever you need to interrupt hate, stand down bigotry, condemn sexism, and find love for all of our global brothers and sisters, every day,” Wonder said.
“Tonight, I’m taking a knee for America,” he added while kneeling.
“But not just one knee. I’m taking both knees,” he said.
“Both knees in prayer for our planet, our future, our leaders of the world, and our globe,” he said, before he finished his prayer, saying “Amen.”
He knelt not in a sign of a protest but in a sign of respect towards God. And he certainly showed when is the proper way to kneel.
Even though Wonder sometimes has expressed his liberal side, we have to respect this man for his choice to make this impressive gesture.
Our love for our nation and God is the only thing that can keep us together in this time when the world is filled with hate and division.
