CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) - Dozens of celebrities have been throwing their support behind NFL players and George Clooney is one of them.
Clooney isn't taking a knee but he's putting his pen to paper.
Tuesday the Oscar-winning director, actor and activist penned a poem for The Daily Beast.
I pray for my country.
I pray that we can find more that unites us than divides us.
I pray that our nation's leaders want to do the same.
I pray that young children like Tamir Rice can feel safe in their own neighborhood.
I pray for all of our children.
I pray for our police and our first responders.
I pray for our men and women of the armed services.
I pray that dissent will always be protected in this great country.
I pray for a more perfect union.
And when I pray, I kneel.
Clooney's poem was published just days after President Donald Trump said players who refuse to stand for the singing of the national anthem before sporting events should be 'fired'.
