A young Texas boy named Royce Thompson inadvertently taught a lesson on respect that people like San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick can use.
In a post on Facebook, Royce’s mother, Heather Nelson, explained what her patriotic son did when she dropped him off for school on Thursday.
He was running to get into school because he was late, when suddenly he stopped.
As other kids rushed around him to get into the school Nelson noticed her son frozen in place.
“Royce..go..go,” she told him as kids whizzed past, but he wouldn’t move.
As she approached a police officer, Cibby Moore, put her hand over her heart and said “”Mom he’s doing good. He stopped for the Pledge of Allegiance and now he’s praying,” since prayer is not allowed in the school.
“I said a prayer,” Royce told Fox 26 before reciting his prayer. “Thank you God. Thank you for giving me a wonderful day.”
“I couldn’t believe that he acknowledged that that was a moment of, you know, you need to stop and do the pledge,” Moore said. “And he just, he did. And he just ignored all the other kids around him and kept doing it. It was awesome.”
The picture has received nearly two million people share and comment on the photo, including a news team from China.
This is the type of child Trump was talking about when he discussed his plans for education that would prevent future Kaepernicks.
