Some people want to cower before terrorists. Others remind us what being American is all about, like the Marine in Garland, Texas who responded to a terrorist attack in the most patriotic way.

Marine Joseph Offutt has been standing strong and proud with the American flag near the location where the shooting took place in Garland, Texas- Offutt’s hometown.

Raised by an Army family, this 21-year-old Marine decided to stand up in the most admirable way when he noticed America was living in fear after the attack.

“People are already afraid since 9/11 and I don’t want people to be scared so I’ve been out here every day since Tuesday holding the American flag,” Offutt said in an exclusive interview with QPolitical.

Rain or shine- Offutt has been there ALL day. Standing for 14 hours or more! Talk about dedication.

People have been inspired by his patriotism and have joined the #AmericanChallenge movement he started on Facebook. People honk like crazy as they pass the sea of Old Glory and signs that say “honk if you love America.” You can’t stop the goosebumps that happen as you pass this magical scene.

… “Every day that I come out here more and more people show up,” Offutt said in the interview. “We’re trying to get the word spread out that we need to come together. Doesn’t matter what race or religion you are- we can all stand together as Americans.”

Because of Offutt, other residents have joined in, standing with American flags to show their patriotism and their strength. No matter what these terrorists try to do to us, they can’t break our resolve — that’s what it means to be an American.
