— A moment of patriotism caught by the Roseboro Fire Department last week is being shared on social media thousands of times.

The Roseboro Fire Department posted a photo of 8-year-old Thomas Jones and 6-year-old Derrick Ingram, with their hand over their heart after they noticed the American Flag being raised over the Roseboro Fire Station.

According to Chief Lee Coleman, the boys were also reciting the pledge of allegiance.

The act of patriotism was shared on Facebook thousand of times, many applauding their parents and cheering the young men on for their show of respect.

The boys are cousins and we’re riding their hover board and scooters around town when they saw the flag.
