A MUST READ: Widow Of Slain Police Officer Writes Open Letter To Nike

A police officer’s widow, expressing her personal repugnance for the new Colin Kaepernick ad campaign for Nike, wrote a profoundly moving open letter to the company that has since gone viral.
Kaepernick has expressed his hostility toward America’s police in various ways, from wearing socks with pigs dressed as police officers to comparing police officers to fugitive slave patrolmen.
Sherry Graham-Potter, the widow of Pima County, Ariz., Sheriff’s Deputy Tim Graham, who was killed in 2005 when he was struck and killed by an oncoming vehicle while Graham tried to prevent an emotionally disturbed man from getting killed on the highway, wrote the letter, which starts by relating what happened to her husband, whose death left her raising two young sons alone. The letter then tells of the terrible grief she suffered after his death, and the Nike cap that she wore while recovering that became a symbol of the “strength and the sacrifice” of her husband.
