Rather than start another Cold War in hopes a country will submit to American ideals, I feel we can send an incredible, non-violent statement to Russia during the 2014 Winter Olympics.
Forget the American flag just this once. When gay athletes Billie Jean King and Caitlin Cahow represent the United States during the ceremony, let’s have them hoist the Rainbow Flag.
