ARLINGTON, Texas – A Texas boy is receiving praise for a simple act of kindness caught on camera during a Fourth of July parade, Fox News reported.
The North Texas boy, identified as Josh, stepped into the Independence Day celebration to tie an Honor Guard member’s shoe; the Honor Guard member’s hands were full, presenting the American flag.
A woman snapped a photo of the moment and shared it on Facebook, saying “We need more of his type in the world.”
