Teen Tells Grandma To Rush To School, Takes Out Her Camera As Soon As She Arrives

Living in America means that you have a special freedom that many people in different parts of the world will never get to experience. We should be proud to be Americans and take the symbol of the American flag very seriously. One patriotic teen was caught on camera doing something so special that it got the attention of people all over the internet. Eighteen-year-old Cole Dotson, who is a senior at Continental High School in Continental, Ohio, was driving by the school when he saw that the flag had fallen to the ground. He immediately pulled over, stopped his car, and held the flag up so it wouldn’t be left sitting on the ground. Dotson then called his grandmother for assistance.

Dotson’s grandmother, who works at the school, arrived to help him and the proud woman took a picture of her grandson while they waited for more help to come. Dotson’s mother later posted the picture to Facebook where it was shared more than 24,000 times. “When your son calls his grandmother and says he has a problem… it’s usually not good,” his mother wrote. “This is where she found him this morning. The flag fell to the ground, he saw it, stopped and held it until someone from school could come and put it back up. Proud of you Cole Dotson! There is hope for America!”

“When your son calls his grandmother and says he has a problem… it’s usually not good,” she wrote. “This is where she found him this morning. The flag fell to the ground, he saw it, stopped and held it until someone from school could come and put it back up. Proud of you Cole Dotson! There is hope for America!” Then, Dotson took to Facebook himself to express his gratitude for the support he has received. He also added in that he didn’t expect recognition for his good deed.

“This picture of me got almost 100 likes and 60 shares in two hours,” Dotson wrote. “Makes me proud. Thank you all for the support! I didn’t intend to get recognized for what I did. But I am sure glad to see the support and respect for the flag. I love this flag and this country. God bless America.”
