Rodney Ivester, of Corinth, Texas, is the kind of guy you’d like as a neighbor. He maintains a tidy lawn, doesn’t make much of a racket and he flies an American flag.
About three weeks ago, Rodney decided to post another flag alongside Old Glory - to honor law enforcement. It’s a black & white version of the U.S. flag adorned with a blue stripe.
He told me that posting the flag was a small way that he could honor the memory of the five police officers gunned down in Dallas in July.
“I love my country and I wanted to show my support for law enforcement and military personnel,” he told me. “I put the flag up so that I can honor the fallen officers and support those that are in the heat of the battle.”
Rodney’s neighbor is a police officer and he was genuinely touched by the simple gesture – a message of solidarity.
