(WFLA) — A video has gone viral of a young Utah boy who took the time to say the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag when nobody was looking.
Jami Warner said she only knew about this because her 7-year-old son, Wyatt, was caught on a neighbor’s security camera. Wyatt turned 8-years-old after this footage was captured.
The video was posted to Instagram, and Wyatt was seen riding a small motorbike up to his neighbor’s doorstep.
He is then seen approaching the house and when he notices the flag, he immediately stops. Wyatt then put his hand over his heart and recited the Pledge of Allegiance to the American flag flying on the house.
Jami said she’s never seen him do anything like this. Matt asked Wyatt why he did it and Wyatt’s response was, “to respect the troops.” Matt said he never instructed his son to do that whenever he’s around a flag – it was 100 percent him.
Matt added Wyatt’s great-grandfather was in the Air Force and he tries to teach his son to respect the military, the American flag and our country.
Wyatt’s parents said he is a normal rambunctious 8-year-old boy, really active with his sports. He plays basketball, baseball football and participates in wrestling.
His parents also said Wyatt is aware of the video and thinks it’s cool, but he’s more focused on being a kid and selling popsicles and lemonade to his neighborhood.
