I live in New Jersey.
South Jersey to be specific.
Whitney Houston was a Jersey girl.
She will be buried here.
Our Governor, Chris Christie, is mulling the idea of flying the American Flag at half staff.
Usually I don't pay close attention to politics (the Grandpop keeps me informed) but this most recent "idea" has garnered my attention.
I ask you Gov. Christie to not fly the flag at half staff for Whitney Houston.
Not because I don't like her.
Not because I don't feel for her family.
I ask because this an honor reserved for the military.
Perhaps, Gov. Christie, you should have offered to fly the flag at half staff last week when a 20 year member of the military was killed in Afghanistan. There was no mention of it.
Whitney...no a member of the military.
So..no half staff.
Let's keep it for those who have died for our freedom in this country and other countries.
For those who have served their country.
