Photo of boys stopping to recite Pledge of Allegiance as flag is raised at fire department goes viral

Two young people took the time to stop playing and recite the Pledge of Allegiance as a flag was raised at Roseboro Fire Department in North Carolina — and now the moment is going viral.
The photo, which was shared on Friday by the Roseboro Fire Department, shows two boys who stopped at an intersection in their town with their hands over their hearts, as Chaplain Bobby Herring was raising the U.S. flag.
“This afternoon as Chaplain Herring was raising the U.S. flag to full staff, he looked over to the intersection and saw these two young people standing there with hands on their heart saying the pledge of allegiance,” the post read. “God bless our community.”

The boys, who according to Raleigh, N.C., news station WRAL are cousins, were riding their scooter and hoverboard, respectively, when they noticed the flag being raised.
The original post has been shared nearly 3,000 times and received a number of heartwarming comments.
Roseboro Fire Department identified the boys on Monday as Derrick Tyrone Ingram Jr. and Thomas Edwards Jones Jr., the Charlotte Observer reported, and their act has left their family proud. “My son and my nephew,” Ladii J Ingram shared on the Facebook post. When told she should be proud of her son and nephew, she responded, “I am, this made my whole day.” Others heaped on praise, writing, “Thank you for instilling respect in your young men!”
“Their response was taught, and taught well,” posted one person. “Please congratulate these young men for the respect they showed our great flag and our great nation. They are setting the example for others to follow.”
“The fact that they stood there showing respect without being prompted to do so says a lot about how they are being raised, another wrote on the fire department’s Facebook post.

  1. Ever notice, the flag us citizens get to worship has no gold fringe? The one that really counts, in the Buildings wherein the bloodthirsty, filthy rich, and Legal, the Rabbis, are, the flags are fringed in gold, telling us, where the real value of it all, lies.
    Us citizens, we need our own flag, how about "Don't tread on me" for starters, leave that phony "stars and stripes" to the filthy rich and their killers to serve, we need a break today. We need a flag of our own, a religion of our own, nations of our own and for our children a hope, for a real future.
    We need, our own Leadership, long over due.

  3. The ones with the gold fringe designate Maritime Law....which is different than our non fringed flags. You will see the fringed ones in Courtrooms giving out a different kind of justice....
