I just wanted to take a moment to give credit where credit is due... Props to Seaside Heights for continuing their tradition of playing the National Anthem along the boardwalk to start the day in the Heights. In my opinion, it's nice to have this patriotic start each day and it helps remind us of what a great country we live in.

In a day and age where "some" look down on the Stars and Stripes I believe it's a fantastic gesture by Seaside Heights officials to begin each day with just a few minutes to celebrate this great nation and those who have made the ultimate sacrifice for us citizens to enjoy all that we have to be thankful for here in the United States of America. In my humble opinion each day should start with the "Pledge of Allegiance" and our "National Anthem".

For those who are offended by our nation's anthem, there are options...

Make sure you get a chance to honor America in Seaside Heights at 11 a.m. each morning and enjoy the sounds of our great nation.
