11-year-old Nate and Isaac goes at Coppergate Elementary School in Middleburg, Florida, and they have a very important job to complete every day! They are safety patrols and they are in charge of lowering the American flag during school dismissal!
Via Life Aspire: “Neither one of them had any idea that the task they tackled on a stormy day would make their community, and people nationwide, so proud of their actions. At the end of the school day, the boys went out in the pouring rain to protect and take care of something that is very meaningful to many Americans.
The 11-year-old boys are in charge of lowering the American flag during school dismissal. When a big rainstorm came into town, the pair decided they would still complete their job.
They patiently and reverently folded the flag through the drenching rain. Coppergate Elementary School media specialist, Kim Miskowski, wrote on the school’s Facebook page:
“Not only did they bring the flag down, they also stood in the wind and rain and calmly completed the 13 folds. Then Nate protected the flag as he walked with honor and respect to retire it for the day.”
Nate’s parents served in the military, and the young man told FOX 30 that he and Isaac braved the rain because it was “the respectful thing to do.” And during a somewhat tumultuous time in American politics, it’s refreshing to see two young men demonstrate such patriotism.
The pair was praised by the school for their:”…responsibility, respect, devotion to duty, and love of country.”
Kim told Fox 30: “They were folding the flag reverently. They were reverent. And they were doing 13 folds … and you know, our country is in a little bit of turmoil … it just struck me. When they walked away they held it … cradled it to protect it. And it was just a moment that was meant to be, I think.”
I am so proud of these 2 young men for showing how to properly respect the American Flag! There are some adults that should take the example of these young boys that know the value of what we have by those that have given their lives. I’m so overwhelmed by what they have done. Their parents have set such a wonderful value for them and I’m sure they are so proud!!
It’s good to know and see our juniors to have and show such respect for our country in such a time when our country is in such turmoil. Let millions of people follow and acknowledge who they are so that it will start a revolution to move our country back in the right direction to be proud of our country again. We have a lot to lose but more to gain!
