For the first time ever, my Peace Flag suffered an f-bomb prior to the nationally-televised NBC Sunday Night Football game between the Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Rams while I stood outside the southwest gate of FirstEnergy Stadium. Later on, however, there was moral support from a caped “superhero.”
On the other hand, it was a mostly positive afternoon/evening, promoting peace for a few hours to hundreds of Browns fans as well as an impressive number of Rams fans while wearing my 51-year-old U.S. Army uniform and carrying my controversial flag. As has always been the case with crowds of people, whether it’s fans going to Indians games or Browns games, many seemed deaf to my greetings. I was my usual cheery self, letting my veteran uniform and peace flag do my proselytizing.
