A spontaneous display of patriotism by a group of U.S. military children in Spain will give you reason to feel better about America’s future.
In recognition of April being the “Month of the Military Child,” forty children at Naval Station Rota in Spain were taken to a matinee at the local theater, according to Hannah Kunze.
The self-described manager of an after school program on the base, Kunze posted a video of the children’s visit on her YouTube account.
She wrote that movie goers are asked to stand before each showing while the national anthem is played, and as seen in the video, the children, ranging from 5 to 12 years old, naturally begin singing along with the instrumental rendition of “The Star-Spangled Banner.”
“It gives you chills to see patriotism like this displayed in youth at such a young age,” Kunze said.
A moving experience.
