A picture of three Maine roofers who paused while the national anthem was played at a high school next to their job site has appeared everywhere on the Internet.
The picture was shot on Saturday, Oct. 14, features the three roofers with their hands over their hearts as the national anthem was played at Waterville High School during a football game.
The guys could hear the anthem play because of the proximity of the home to the school.
“They had no idea anyone even noticed but our community did,” Shanon Gurski Dixon said to WMTW. “Several people had taken pictures of this patriotic act of kindness.”
“Our little city would love to have them recognized,” Dixon pointed, prior to the picture went viral.
She hopes a national personality, like Ellen DeGeneres, will see the picture and honor these guys for their patriotism.
David Charns posted the phot on Facebook, and above it he wrote:
These three men were doing roof work next to Waterville High School this Saturday when they heard the national anthem and paused.
Shanon Gurski Dixon says, “They had no idea anyone even noticed but our community did. Several people had taken pictures of this patriotic act of kindness. We started sharing it on FB and Twitter to find out who these men were so we could thank them. We have all 3 names and the name of the company the work for. It turns out they were doing independent work that day, but they are roofers by trade and all work together for a company out of Oakland Maine. Our little city would love to have them recognized!”
