One American’s Tribute to the American Flag had a Crowd at a Hockey Game Stunned!

Over the weekend artist and sometime singer Joe Everson had the opportunity to sing the National Anthem before a Toledo Walleye’s hockey game and boy, did he ever.

In recent months it’s become trendy to protest our national anthem and our flag over various and sundry social injustices – as if either the anthem or the flag stood for these injustices. Activists and professional protesters across the nation have booed, stomped, burned, spat on, defecated upon, and otherwise disrespected both symbols of our national identity like they’d just discovered the joy of being anti-American. Most of us in fly-over country have been forced to deal with the constant crush of anti-American propaganda from our own national media, and we’ve done what any sensible person would – we shut it off. We’ve boycotted the NFL, and we’ve delivered warnings to anyone listening that we’re done enriching the people who beg for our dollars out of one side of their mouth while cursing us out the other.

Which is why it’s such a breath of fresh air to come across a talented artist and proud American like Joe Everson. Everson pleased the crowd at the Toledo Walleye game with his rendition of the National Anthem, but it was what he did while singing that had them cheering their hearts out. During the minute and a half that he was singing the beautiful song, Everson was also painting a sentimental tribute to our heroes in the military.

Awesome, right?

Here’s a photo with Everson and the finished painting after the game.

By the way, this isn’t the first time that Joe Everson has done this particular tribute. Here he is performing the same patriotic feat in Greenville, South Carolina earlier in 2016.

Thanks for giving us something to cheer about, Joe. 🇺🇸

I am the supreme law of the United States. Originally comprising seven articles, I delineate the national frame of government. My first three articles entrench the doctrine of the separation of powers, whereby the federal government is divided into three branches: the legislative, consisting of the bicameral Congress; the executive, consisting of the President; and the judicial, consisting of the Supreme Court and other federal courts. Articles Four, Five and Six entrench concepts of federalism, describing the rights and responsibilities of state governments and of the states in relationship to the federal government. Article Seven establishes the procedure subsequently used by the thirteen States to ratify it. I am regarded as the oldest written and codified constitution in force of the world.
