Don’t end anthem tradition

I was extremely disappointed to read Mr. Smith’s “moment of silence” comments in his recent column. I think he certainly shows his true colors when he feels we do not need to stand and show our respect for our country when the national anthem is played.  Not only does he feel we do not need to stand and show our respect but he wants to not even play the national anthem for sporting events!  

He was probably very pleased when schools stopped doing the Pledge of Allegiance. When are we going to stop changing our traditions for the vocal minorities? This great county has many wonderful traditions that we should continue to observe.  

Is he next going to propose we stop celebrating Independence Day?
