"We just figured we'd do something to honor America for the 4th of July and we went out for a couple hours to do what we do and the next day it was like wow," said Tavares.

It was an unexpected reaction with an unforgettable reward. Both Tavares and McNulty said they chose "God Bless America" to spread a message of unity.
