A photo of two young boys who stopped to recite the Pledge of Allegiance in front of a North Carolina firehouse has gone viral. Over the weekend, Roseboro Fire Department posted an image of the boys with their hands over their hearts as the flag was raised.
The department said in a Facebook post on Friday that their chaplain spotted the two boys, now identified as Thomas, 7, and Derrick, 6, paying respect to the flag in Roseboro, a small town near Raleigh.
"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 act of patriotism received an outpouring of support and pride in comments. Many commended the boys and how they were raised. The news eventually made its way to Derrick's mother, Ladii Ingram.
Ingram told CBS News that she was at work when she started receiving notifications about her son and nephew. She admitted to being initially worried, but then that turned into pure joy once she realized what the attention was for.
"I started crying," Ingram told CBS News. "It made my day." Ingram said she's "very proud" of them and both boys "can hold a conversation like they're 21 years old."

The USA still has a chance...
the pressident should bring these two guys to the WH- so much win...
Until the leftist hate starts
Good to see this. Sad that it is so uncommon as to make the news.
That is MY AMERICA!
You two kids are an example of what is right in this country.
Roseboro is not near Raleigh.
Great. Love it.
One Nation....Under God....
There used to be a time when doing this was ordinary and no big deal and expected... SIGH, now they act as if this is unusual...
We did it too-—but there was no “under God” until the mid fifties.
Exactly. Mom wanted to reward these kids...take’em to the White House for a true reward.
This story needs to go to PDJT.
These fine boys live 20 miles from Diamond and Silk.
that flag is beautiful
...and to the republic for which it stands...
How many K-6 public school kids say those words any more? I did every morning (dates me).
Our hearts want to belong to something good, that makes us proud. May America become that good thing for our young people, once again.
Wonder how quickly these boys will start getting death threats from the left. Or demands that the schools they attend suspend them for “obvious hate speech”.
The White Man is using these boys as PAWNS. I bet Whitey PAID these boys to pose here. They should be KNEELING!
I am so triggered. Where’s my safe space?
/typical lib response.
Nice kids. Congrats to the family.
