ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — Some residents made their way to Electric Road in Roanoke Saturday morning, just across from the Tanglewood Mall, holding up signs saying “Honk if you love America.”
Those holding the signs just across from the Tanglewood Mall on Saturday, July 4 did get the feedback they were hoping for: lots of honks from passing cars.
“I’d like to think that everybody honking their horn today loves America,” said Roanoke resident Timothy McCroskey. “That’s exactly what’s on the sign: honk if you love America. Only those people know in their hearts whether they’re true patriots of our country, but we certainly are here today.”
McCroskey and others said they were looking for some validation that people still love their country, even during this time of social unrest.
