A Feel Good Post

Hundreds ride with boy to show support for his U.S.-flag-decorated bike after school banned it

Courtesy KOVR:

It wasn’t this California boy’s usual ride to school this morning!
Hundreds of other bike riders came along—

Many of them veterans, and some from out of state, all wanting to show support to 13-year-old Cody Alicea.
School officials had told Cody he shouldn’t ride his American flag-decorated bike to school because some students were offended.

That kicked up a firestorm of protest.

The school superintendent has since apologized, and promised that something like that will not happen again.

But the school district is now facing a lawsuit from a civil liberties group.

    This was a wonderful show of support for this boy,and for our flag. I hope this sends a message to all stop challenging our visible and legal expressions of our love for our country. I wrote an e-mail to the principal right after this happened. I reminded him that this is the United States of Aemrica, and that what he did was so wrong. He
    suppressed this child’s freedom of expression. I told him he had no legal or valid reason to do what he did. I told him that no foreigner or anyone else has the right to be offended by our flag, as long as it is no displayed upside down defaced as mockery.

    God bless these bikers and bless the civil liberties group for making an example of this school district.
