Richardson right about the flag

I am so thrilled that someone has brought the flag topic to the forefront. Terry Richardson is absolutely right in his belief that “the honor has been cheapened by almost cavalier use.”

When Whitney Houston passed away, I cried. I really enjoyed her music and thought she was very talented. However, I was also appalled when I learned that flags were being lowered to half-staff in her honor.

As stated in the article, the flag should be reserved for our veterans and dignitaries, those who fight for our nation and protect our nation, not for people who die of a drug overdose. Enough things in our world are changing – can’t we at least keep our flag sacred?
