A Hero: Cody Alecia, the Flagboy

Most of you have no doubt heard of Cody Alecia, the youngster who a few days ago was told to remove the American flag from his bicycle when he rode onto school property. Cody, a patriotic youngster, attends the Denair Middle School in Denair, Ca, and it was the Superintendent of that school district, Edward Parraz, who stated the reason for Cody being told to remove the flag is because “flying the American flag might cause racial tensions.

I was incensed when I read of this, as were multitudes more. Such actions are ridiculous and sadly indicative of the sordid plight of our country. So many people protested, and so much pressure was brought on the school that it has now reversed itself.

Today, Cody was honored when hundreds of American Legion Riders and fellow patriots escorted Cody Alicea to Denair Middle School this morning. They all had American Flags on their bikes.
