At least three Syracuse students took a knee during a pre-game national anthem last week.

Three Nottingham High School football players knelt during the national anthem before a game in Auburn last Friday, joining the silent protest started by Colin Kaepernick to raise awareness about injustices against people of color.

William Gorman finds freedom in his music and from the support of his church after the loss of his father.

His music has freed his mind and the sounds have released his pain as one local high school senior heals after his father’s death.

Gorman's father died earlier this year, and he quickly realized that nothing could have prepared him for that moment.

Despite his attempts to live knowing every moment is fleeting, Gorman knows that only time will lessen his pain.
