Three Idaho Students Go To Great Lengths To Protect The Flag

When an Idaho Mom was waiting to pick her own children up from Hayden Meadows School, she saw something that made her take pause. Three young boys, who were clearly responsible for taking down the flag at the end of the school day, had no idea Amanda was watching. But, the length they went to to ensure the flag didn’t touch the ground inspired Amanda to take a photo of their patriotism.

Proud of the boys, she shared the image to her Facebook page, tagging their elementary school.

“Hayden Meadows Elementary School!!! This needs to go viral!

Wow! I just watched the most amazing act of Patriotism! Was waiting to pick up my children from school when three boys took down the flag. They were having a hard time making sure it didn’t touch the ground when the third boy laid under it to honor not letting it touch the ground! — feeling proud at Hayden Meadows ElementarySchool.

Not surprisingly, comments on the post were wildly positive and the photo has been shared more than 3,500 times.

Way to go, boys! Your parents must be very proud of you.
