A young boy was riding his bike over to his neighbor’s house, when he suddenly stopped before ringing the doorbell after seeing the American flag outside their home. Surveillance footage caught the 7-year-old boy from Utah, Wyatt, reciting the Pledge of Allegiance before going up to the front door.
Fox News also reported on this special capture. Wyatt’s mom, Jami, expressed her thoughts after seeing the video of her son, and had a very powerful message for parents:
“He doesn’t pledge allegiance, that I am aware of, other than at school...or at an event. I can’t remember a time when he did this on his own. Sometimes we are only looking at them when we notice they are doing something wrong and we need to correct. I wish I could see what my other two do when I am not looking.”
“I wished I could show it to every parent who feels like what they teach their kids goes in one ear and out the other...We try to teach our three kids about how lucky they are to live in this country and about the men and women who have served and died for our freedom. Children born into today's world are strong. I think if we would watch more we would learn from their honesty and sincerity."
