it's truly appauling how un-American this state & country are becoming!

the following is a letter i sent out today to nj senator menendez and governor corzine, via their websites. i also emailed everyone i know with a copy, whether or not they live in nj since this could make the rounds through the country if nj passes it.

"Dear Senator/Governor,

My mother told me this afternoon that she heard on the radio this morning that the NJ State Legislature is considering passing a bill for NJ schools to no longer observe Veteran's Day and Memorial Day. I find this to be disgraceful, un-American and an embarrassment to our State.

My husband is no longer an active Marine, but "Once a Marine, Always a Marine" rings true for him and he has taught me true Patriotism. I cannot imagine his allowing our future children attend schools that do not teach about or observe Veteran's Day and Memorial Day. I know I won't allow it.

Is it any wonder why so many people are leaving our State for others?!

I have emailed everyone I know about this, whether or not they live in NJ because this could start a very disappointing trend if NJ follows through. In a time of war and crisis, is this the message of support we want to send to our troops?!

I would hope that as a Democrat and someone I voted for, you will be fighting against this and will get across the point that those who have fought for our freedoms, in the past, present & future, deserve nothing but our upmost respect and honor, as well as their place in history.

Sincerely..."


as i said above, it's truly appauling how un-American this state and this country is becoming.
