Young Patriot

June 21, 2013

Dear Editor,

On June 13, 2013, at the Farmers’ Market in Broken Bow, I witnessed one of the most touching incidents I have seen in a long time. One of the vendors was displaying an American flag at her spot in the park. A young boy with his Grandma were shopping and as he approached the flag, he paused, lowered his head and proceeded to recite the “Pledge of Allegiance” verbatim!! I was nearly moved to tears!! Oh what a moment to capture if I had only had a camera.

Thank you, Oliver, for being a “ray of hope” to this senior citizen and also thank you to all of the individuals in this young boy’s life who have guided him in this direction. GOOD JOB ALL!
