Hundreds Ride With Flag Boy

Now this makes me happy.

Courtesy KOVR:

It wasn't this California boy's usual ride to school this morning!
Hundreds of other bike riders came along---
Many of them veterans, and some from out of state, all wanting to show support to 13-year-old Cody Alicea.
School officials had told Cody he shouldn't ride his American flag-decorated bike to school because some students were offended.
That kicked up a firestorm of protest.
The school superintendent has since apologized, and promised that something like that will not happen again.

I still want the kids who complained/threatened violence suspended or punished.
