If you were witnessing someone burning or walking on the American flag, what do you think you would do? 

For me it's a no brainer...I would walk over to the person/persons that was walking on the flag and remove it from them. If they were burning it, I would make the effort to put it out and remove the flag from that person/persons.

Protesting is one thing, desecrating the U.S. flag is another. I served in the military. I have a deep honor and respect for the U.S. flag, and the men and women that have served in the military.

Unfortunately on Wednesday during the '17 Minutes of Silence' that was being observed in schools across the country, a video has surfaced on the internet showing a group of students from Antioch High School, a metro school in Nashville, Tennesse, tearing down the American flag.

I imagine everyone has seen some type of film footage of this happening on the internet or on the news channels. I'm sure the idea of it happening has made many of us wonder what would happen if it occurred in our presence.

What would you do?
