Clay’s Corner – Whitney Houston’s Funeral to Include US Flag at Half Staff?

Whitney Houston.  Beautiful musician, singer and actress.  Taken away from us too soon.  I like many others were captivated in the mid 1980′s by her voice.  But unfortunately like many other famous people, they’re taken away with out much notice and to our dismay.  This weekend, the world will say good bye to her in their own way, while her family will have a more private celebration of her life.

But the one thing that has caught my attention is the fact that the Governor of New Jersey has ordered, yes ordered the United States Flag lowered to half staff for Whitney Houston.  Now he does have powers to do as such.  But for a pop singer?

This honor is usually bestowed upon Heads of State, diplomats, Senators and members of Congress.  Also to our great military leaders and heroes who have gone above and beyond the call of duty.

I am sure that I am not the only one who feels that the flag should not be at half staff for Whitney Houston.
