After Caroline Walker's Pride flag was stolen from the front porch of her Covington, Kentucky house, her straight next door neighbors put one up in solidarity, Local 12 reports.

Walker told the news station that it was clear that someone had torn the flag from the porch, and that "it kind of steals your sense of security when you know someone in your area is adversely against you."

When she asked her next door neighbors, Mary and Joe Hudson, if they had seen anything — and they hadn't — Mary thought that flying a Pride flag as a show of support might help. After Walker's replacement flag arrived, she went out onto her porch and noticed that the Hudsons had put up a flag. "So, it was a really sweet moment and I feel a lot safer after that, for sure," she said.
