Hundreds Ride To Support The Patriotism Of 13-Year-Old Cody Alicea

Tuesday, November 16, 2010 Posted by Shattered Paradigm

On Monday, 13-year-old Cody Alicea had a day that he will never forget.  Cody made headlines around the world recently when an official at Denair Middle School ordered him to take down the American flag on the back of his bike while he was on school property.   The school official was concerned that other students would be offended by the American flag.

Well, you can only imagine what happened once the national media got a hold of that story.  A 13-year-old kid that can't ride his bike to school with an American flag?

The national outrage was justifiable and the outpouring of support for Cody was beyond what anyone could imagine. 

As Cody rode his bike to school on Monday, not only was his family there, but he was escorted by hundreds of other bikes and motorcycles. After arriving at school, the news media was there to cover the whole thing and Cody and his patriotic escort recited the Pledge of Allegiance and the National Anthem. It was a very, very emotional day for everyone involved, and it showed that there are still some Americans out there that are willing to stand up for the American flag.

Posted below is a video news report about Monday's extraordinary events....

Fortunately, Cody's story has a very happy ending. The school has changed its mind and now Cody can ride to school every day proudly displaying his American flag.

So what do you think about Cody's story?  Feel free to leave a comment below.

Fortunately, patriotism is coming back into style.  A great resource on patriotism to share with your family is The American Patriot's Almanac: Daily Readings on America by William J. Bennett.
