— I Loved Whitney As A Singer — But People?!?!

Now, I love the talent Whitney Houston had.  Man she had some pipes; but flying the flag at half-staff?  Really?  Now she sang two of the best renditions of the National Anthem I’ve ever heard and perhaps its because I’m a vet, but… Perspective!

Again, NOTHING against Whitney but her being a hero was based on the fact that she was popular and could sing.  Now, let’s clarify something… I don’t even think ALL police, or ALL firefighters, or ALL Military are hero’s.   Based upon the below Bob Dylan quote (which I tend to agree with), would an amazing singer be that?  Is Whitney Houston a hero??

“I think of a hero as someone who understands the degree of

responsibility that comes with his freedom. “

— Bob Dylan
