Roofers in ME stop work to respect national anthem, flag

Three men stand on roof Saturday as the National Anthem plays at high school football game

Three roofers in ME are taking center stage, as a photo of them has gone viral.

At a football game in Waterville on Saturday, October 14, spectators and players were not the only people standing for the national anthem.

The men could hear the anthem play due to the proximity of the home to the school. It was at that moment she chose to take a picture of the roofers. "They aren't kneeling.' When I turn to see who said it, this is what I saw ... three men roofing a house and respecting the flag".

As of Tuesday morning, her photo has been shared more than 850 times, while a Facebook post about the incident by WMTW reporter has been shared more than 2,999 times.

CNN reports the roofers - Dwayne Harrison, Danny Thyng and James Scraggs - had been working for four hours when the national anthem began.

"We were raised to respect and honor our country", said Harrison, the man standing on the roof's peak in the photo.

Harrison, who is on the far right in the photo, told Fox News that standing for the anthem was the "right thing to do".

But in response to Trump's comments, the protest swept the league, causing players from nearly every team to kneel or lock arms during the national anthem.

Players should drop the "divisive political sideshow" and speak out against domestic violence instead, the governor wrote.
