Wow! Colin Kaepernick could certainly learn a thing or two from this little boy. Royce Thompson is from Santa Fe, Texas and his mother had just dropped him at school. He was late, so she told him to run. Just as he was about to get to the doors, the Pledge of Allegiance started on the speakers. Royce stopped dead in his tracks, put his hand over his heart and said the pledge. He then said a prayer. Police Officer Cibby Moore was standing there and was thunderstruck that the little boy did this. I think it is fantastic.
As Royce stood there, his mother caught a picture of him and posted it to Facebook. It has had more than two million shares and has gone uber viral. When asked what he prayed about, the little tyke said he thanked God for giving him a wonderful day. That brought tears to my eyes. Maybe there is hope for America after all.
From BizPac Review:
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.”
All the other kids rushed to make the bell, but Royce knew what was more important here. It shows patriotism, faith, character and that he comes from a family that is raising him right.
This is one of the most awesome things I have ever seen… I just wish all kids were like this. We are going to need them with where this country is headed. Did you know in many American schools, the Constitution and our Founding Fathers are no longer taught even in history? The Marxists are changing our history, purging Christian values and denigrating patriotism of any sort.
This little boy brings home exactly what is important and the right way to do it.
