People stand outside the US Supreme Court June 25, 2015 in Washington, DC. The US Supreme Court on Thursday upheld a disputed portion of President Barack Obama's landmark health care reform, in a major legacy-building victory for his administration. By a margin of six to three, the judges ruled in favor of allowing the federal government to subsidize health insurance by giving tax credits to consumers nationwide. Opponents of the Affordable Care Act -- better known as 'Obamacare' -- had argued that it was unconstitutional for the federal government to subsidize insurance in this way in states that refused to set up their own insurance exchanges.

Sometimes the best thing to do is just wave a flag.

Seven-year-old Zea stood her ground when she was yelled at during a celebration over the Supreme Court ruling this past weekend.

A preacher came over and started ranting through a microphone right at the little girl. However, it didn't bother her one bit! Zea just stood in silence and waved the hate away with her pride colored flag.



Her father Ryan Bowling caught the whole thing in action while both were attending ComFest, an annual music and arts festival in Columbus, Ohio. The festival turned into a celebration after the Supreme Court ruling.

Bowling took to Facebook to express his love and happiness for his daughter stating "Zea didn't just flash the flag at that hatemonger, and bail. They went toe to toe, for several minutes, while he bellowed all of his fire and brimstone right in her face. Grown man vs first grader."

Mara Gruber who was also at the festival was able to capture the amazing moment .

Better version of the photo of the awesome kid! I love ComFest! Hope everyone had a good and safe weekend! I'll post more photos this week!

Needless to say, Zea is our hero! According to Huffington Post, the now viral photo has been turned into a t-shirt and all proceeds will go to Zea as well as an LGBT nonprofit to be chosen by her family.
