I don't know about you, but I could really use a reason to feel good about people right now. The challenges of the last year and a half didn't always bring out the best in us. Just when you're losing faith in people a moment like this gets caught on camera. A simple act of common decency and kindness by Monmouth County Sheriff's Officer, Thomas Menendez not only made me feel better about people, it made my heart smile.
I feel so sick right now. Hundreds of used needles have washed up on a bunch of our Monmouth County beaches from Sandy Hook to Long Branch with over 100 needles found according to recent reports. At first we heard that it was the storms "churning up waste" (which felt wrong by the way)...that would make sense for one needle, not over 100 across our beaches over the same weekend. Officials are saying illegal dumping is to blame. I'm seeing red...I know you are too...This. Hits. Home.
