Now THIS is a great story!

With all the controversy over standing for the flag or reciting the Pledge of Allegiance in schools over the last few years, it sadly seems like a novelty for young people to be instilled with the values of patriotism and respect for our flag.

Two young men are going viral for being the subjects of a picture snapped by North Carolina Fire Chaplain Bobby Herring, who was inspired to see the children stop and recite the Pledge of Allegiance as he raised the flag over the Roseboro Fire Department.

“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 are cousins, were riding by the fire station on a scooter and hoverboard when they noticed the flag being raised, Raleigh’s WRAL reports.

The original post has been shared over 10,000 times across social media and has been flooded nearly 1,000 comments praising the boys and expressing encouragement and appreciation for this heartwarming display of young patriotism.

The boys were identified by the Roseboro Fire Department as Derrick Tyrone Ingram Jr., and Thomas Edwards Jones, Jr, according to the Charlotte Observer. Their families are very proud of them.

“My son and my nephew,” Ladii J Ingram shared on the Facebook post. “This made my whole day.” Her post was full of comments praising her and her family for raising the boys so well. “Thank you for instilling respect in your young men!”

“Their response was taught, and taught well,” wrote one commenter. “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 Facebook user wrote on the original post.

It just goes to show that no matter what is going on in the culture, nothing can overpower the impact of good parenting!

New Zealand Madman Bravely Chased by ‘Good Guy’ with a Gun

As with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit.

New Zealand

 The sheer horror and terror of what has occurred in New Zealand stands at such close proximity at this time, that it is difficult to fully gauge its gravity. It has certainly shocked the nation itself, as New Zealand isn’t known as a dangerous, or even particularly excitable, place.  The serene and unfathomably gorgeous surroundings, along with the California-like dichotomy of beaches and ski mountains within hours of one another, lends the Kiwis the unmistakeable air of “chill” that one normally reserves for Malibu or San Diego. In fact, this rampage claimed the lives of more New Zealanders than an entire year of homicides would have in the country. But, as with any act of gruesome horror, there is always a shining light, somewhere in the darkness, that rekindles our belief in the human spirit. https://twitter.com/RealSaavedra/status/1106407956122263552?ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw%7Ctwcamp%5Etweetembed%7Ctwterm%5E1106407956122263552&ref_url=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.breitbart.com%2Fpolitics%2F2019%2F03%2F14%2Freport-good-guy-gun-chased-shot-new-zealand-attackers%2F That’s right; a good guy with a gun.  It’s the same story that we hear time and again, all over the globe, and it rings fundamentally true in nearly all aspects of life. It is not enough to hope and pray for the bad guys to turn the other cheek.  No; we must also hope and pray that good men will not stand aside and do nothing in the face of such evil.  And, by God, let’s hope they’re armed.

Fair Haven, Vermont’s Newest “Mayor” to Take “Office” Tuesday

Mayor Lincoln will take the reins, (no pun intended), on Tuesday, after beating canine competitor Sammie Viger in the bizarre mayoral race.

When it comes to community fundraising, there are no shortage of unique and inspired ways in which Americans can help one another out. Between the candy bar cartel, the car wash cabal, and the bake sale barons, local communities throughout our nation have long found interesting and unique ways to stash a little extra cash for a shared project. Now, one town in Vermont is taking things a step further, allowing residents the opportunity to put a name on the mayoral ballot for a mere $5, with the cash raised going to the creation of a new public playground. But there’s a catch… A 3-year-old goat in Vermont beat out more than a dozen other pets for the title of honorary mayor. Lincoln, a Nubian goat, was chosen by residents in Fair Haven, a town of roughly 2,500 people that sits along the border of Upstate New York, to serve as mayor for one year. The goat was among 15 other animals on the ballot in the running for the honorary position. Lincoln beat out several other animals, including cat Sassy Towle, a dog named Stella Heibler and a gerbil named Crystal, for the job. Lincoln took 13 of the 53 votes cast, just surpassing a dog named Sammie Viger who took home 11. The young, female goat will lead the town’s Memorial Day parade later this year, dressed to the nines in yet to be revealed “custom sash”. And while the fundraising stunt only brought in around $100, local officials are hopeful the exposure that Lincoln brings to the town will be beneficial in as-of-yet unknown ways.
