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!

Save conservative media!

With nearly endless coverage of all the chaos and violence bombarding us on network news, not to mention the whole fight over mask mandates, coronavirus safety measures, and everything else happening in the world, it can be easy to think there’s no goodness left in the world. Of course, as long as Jesus Christ is on the throne we know that’s not true, but sometimes, you just need to be reminded that He’s still at work in the world around us. And He is, folks. He truly is. That’s why we need to hear stories like the following. Apparently, a single mom who lost her job during the lockdown over coronavirus, has donated lottery winnings to a police officer that was shot in the line of duty. Here’s more on this from The Washington Examiner: Shetara Sims lost her job amid the coronavirus pandemic and had $7 to her name, local outlet WITN reported Tuesday. She found a $1 bill in a grocery store parking lot, bought a scratch-off ticket, and won $100. Her daughter, Rakiya Edmonson, suggested they donate the money to an officer who was shot on the job on July 2 and remains in the intensive care unit. “She won $100, and I said we should donate it to the police officer that got shot for his family to go eat and see him,” Edmonson said. Sims agreed with her daughter and said she was motivated to donate because of the empathy officers had shown her following her sister’s 2012 murder. Sims went on to discuss how detectives were really there for her and her family during that difficult season of life. “The detectives were really there for us. They were there for us more than anyone I can imagine. They did things they didn’t have to…

There really isn’t anything more American than craft beer. Before the experiment called “prohibition”, America was home to well over 2,500 breweries, with a vast majority of these businesses being family-operated and neighborhood-focused.  The banning of alcohol in the early 20th century brought this number down to around a half dozen or so companies, nearly all of whom converted their factories to produce medicine or dairy products in order to survive. Now, thanks to the resurgence of craft beer, Americans have their choice of nearly 4,000 smaller breweries to buy their swill from. And this doesn’t include brands like Coors, Miller, or Budweiser, who have all been gobbled up by giant, foreign conglomerates, making them no longer American-owned companies. In Atlanta, Georgia, the undisputed king of craft beer is Sweetwater – a brand usually focused on recreation and leisure. As visitors experience the brewery’s newly renovated taproom over Memorial Day Weekend, something special and spontaneous happened. To that, we simply say “cheers”.
