The Actions of Melissa Mark-Viverito

What You Should Know By Senator Rev. Rubén Díaz 32nd Senatorial District 718-991-3161The Actions of Melissa Mark-ViveritoYou should know that here in the United States of America, every citizen has been taught to face the flag and stand at attention with their right hand over their heart when “The Star Spangled Banner” is played or sung, and when the Pledge of Allegiance is recited. Our salute is directed to the flag of the United States.  This sign of respect is done by any good citizen during public ceremonies when the national anthem is played and the flag is displayed.  People even stand up and honor the national anthems of other countries when their national anthems are played and their flags are displayed.

Now the pitbulls have met.  However, there is no truth to the rumor that Senator DeFrancisco is going to launch a singing career.

Brooklyn – State Senator Martin J. Golden (R-C-I, Brooklyn), today is calling on Governor Andrew Cuomo to solidify New York State’s commitment to those who have fallen ill in the wake of the recovery efforts at Ground Zero, and sign legislation, S7628-A/A9562-A, (GOLDEN/ABBATE) into law.

This legislation would reopen the notice of participation, and extend the deadline in which to file as having a World Trade Center related condition, for those yet to submit an application.

Salute Our National Anthem on its Bicentennial

Two hundred years ago during the night of Sept. 13th - 14th, the British bombardment of Ft. McHenry inspired Francis Scott Key to write “Star Spangled Banner,” which became our National anthem. The song became popular and, over time, it was played at increasingly large-scale public ceremonies, such as parades and sporting events. President Wilson, in 1916, had it played at military ceremonies, causing it to become the unofficial National Anthem. In 1931, Congress passed legislation to officially make it the National Anthem.
