Kim shared her photos with the school which was so impressed by the boys’ actions that they posted them on Facebook along with this message:
“This is what RESPECT looks like at Coppergate. Two of our safety patrols, Nate and Isaac, quietly went to the courtyard and completed their flag duty in a driving rainstorm.
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. We are so proud of Nate and Isaac for their responsibility, respect, devotion to duty, and love of country.”
The photos quickly went viral, even making their way to Florida senator Marco Rubio who sent a representative to meet with the boys and give them each a certificate, a letter, and a flag flown on the United States Capitol Building to thank them for what they had done.
When asked why they had risked the nasty weather to take the flag down, Nate’s answer was simple:
“I feel like it was the respectful thing to do.”
We all have a little good inside us. Share it today!
