A photo of two young boys in North Carolina has gone viral after the pair stopped to say the Pledge of Allegiance as the flag was raised.
“The two Roseboro boys, Derrick Tyrone Ingram Jr. and Thomas Edwards Jones Jr., however are evidently getting better lessons at home and school. Their actions touched the hearts of the firefighters, who shared the picture on Facebook, and said, ‘God Bless our community,'” according to First in Freedom Daily.
The post reached over 100 likes quickly after being posted on the Fire Department’s page, which Chief Kenneth Lee Coleman Jr said, “I thought that’s pretty good for us because we don’t usually get that many likes.” The post now has almost 9.5k likes and 9.3k shares on Facebook.
The story comes as an uplifting change of pace after another North Carolina 10 year-old-year kid kneeled for the Pledge of Allegiance during a city council meeting in Durham. The boys father, Scott Holmes, stated he and his son talked about kneeling before the pledge and was “really proud of him,” as reported by Fox News. The Mayor of Durham Steve Schewel thanked the child for kneeling stating, “to the Scout that expressed his conscience by kneeling, we will say that we endorse and appreciate all expressions of conscience in the Durham City Council.”
The difference in the two stories are astounding. The first story has received an overwhelming amount of respect and praise for the decency of these boys. The second slams the parents for coaching their son into kneeling for a photo op with the intention of it going viral.
Kudos to these boys from Roseboro for standing and respecting the flag!
POLL: 54% of Americans See “Other People in America” as the Greatest Threat to US Way of Life
A Sunday poll conducted by CBS News reveals unprecedented division within the American public, with 54% Americans pointing to their fellow citizens as the greatest threat to what they define as the American way of life.
Economic forces, natural disasters, and foreign threats were easily surpassed by the threat presented by “other people in America.”
In coming years, a majority of the American public predicts that political violence will become more frequent, not more rare.
Voters overwhelmingly expect Joe Biden’s focus as President to be placed upon the Chinese coronavirus, with concern over the virus evidently a bipartisan sentiment surpassing the deep political divisions of the Union.
Trump and Biden voters report overwhelming scorn for one another, with 5% of the former and 4% of the latter approving of the opposition’s political constituency.
A slim majority of Trump voters reject viewing Joe Biden as a legitimate President.
It’s one thing to lament the disunity and recommend the adoption of a partisan agenda as a tentative solution to the unprecedented decline in social trust in America. The most honest of commentators may be the ones who frankly admit that America’s legal and governing structure isn’t designed for such a scenario and that the solutions aren’t readily available.
