The Sweet Little Boys Going Viral for Reciting the Pledge of Allegiance When They Saw a Fire Station Flag Go Up



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.

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!

Dog in Thailand with Three Legs Hailed as Hero After Saving Abandoned Newborn

And he did it all with only three legs.




We don’t deserve dogs. Sure, that has been said thousands of times over throughout the course of modern history, but the logic is still difficult to argue with even with all of that preparation. These creatures, after tens of thousands of years as our only true companion animal, have evolved into not only being fairly well dependent on us, but also to love us unconditionally, and in ways that we could only dream about. New research even suggests that owning dogs has altered the human genetic code, and that being a “dog person” is something that a DNA test can reveal. Furthermore, dogs are kind and caring in ways that we may never be able to replicate as a more sentient animal. Take the case of a peculiar pup in Thailand who this week saved a newborn baby from an unfathomable fate at the hands of its mother. A dog in northern Thailand has rescued a newborn baby after it was buried alive, allegedly by its teenage mother. The baby boy is said to have been abandoned by his mother, 15, to hide her pregnancy from her parents. Ping Pong the dog was barking and digging in a field in Ban Nong Kham village. Its owner says he then noticed a baby’s leg sticking out of the earth. Locals rushed the baby to hospital where doctors cleaned him up and declared he was healthy. Ping Pong, despite having lost a leg in a car accident, has always been a good boy. Ping Pong’s owner, Usa Nisaikha, says it lost the use of one of its legs after being hit by a car. He told Khaosod Newspaper: “I kept him because he’s so loyal and obedient, and always helps me out when I go to the fields to tend to my cattle.…

MUST SEE: Enormous Gorillas Turn into Scaredy Cats in Hilarious Viral Video

The hilarious clip is something that almost all of us can relate to.




When it comes to the animal kingdom, there are few beasts more frightening than those in the gorilla family. Their sheer strength is conveyed by their hulking and brutally-muscled bodies, which are capable of producing power at a rate nine times that of man.  Scientists have indicated that a Silverback Gorilla may be capable of lifting up to 1.800 pounds of dead weight. That’s nearly the curb weight of a ultra-compact car. Knowing what we know about these creatures, it stands to reason that almost nothing in the natural world would disturb or deter them…. ….except for maybe a little rain. These gorillas from a zoo in South Carolina have met their match in rain shower, in the above clip which has gone viral this week. The prancing primates were all the rage on Twitter as well. Some have pointed out, however, that wild gorilla will enjoy a good rain from time to time, leading some to believe that these apes may just be a bit spoiled.
