Heartfelt Respect

We were outside doing the yard tonight and my next door neighbor came up to me to tell me about a very touching experience he had involving Corbyn. About a month ago, he was outside doing his yard when he saw Corbyn, in full Cub Scout uniform, riding his bike home from Scouts. One of the other neighbors had their American Flag up and my neighbor said that when Corbyn came upon it, he stopped his bike, got off, did the Cub Scout flag salute, then just stood there and stared at the flag. How sweet is that? My neighbor was a little choked up when he told me the story and I must say, I had the same reaction as I listened to it. I'm so grateful that Corbyn has such heartfelt respect for the American Flag and and what it stands for. I am also SO grateful to live in America and having the freedoms we enjoy every day!!!!!
