Fifth-graders tasked with helping to take down the American flag at their Idaho elementary school Hayden Meadows Elementary, are being praised for taking the job seriously after one student was pictured lying on his back to protect the flag from touching the ground.
Amanda Reallan, arrived early to pick her children up on Wednesday afternoon when she noticed the three boys struggling to fold the flag while keeping it from touching the ground. Then one of the boys jumped in to save the other two from doing just that by creating a barrier with his body.
Reallan took to her Facebook to share a photo writing, “Wow! I just watched the most amazing act of Patriotism!”
