This Little Boy Was Running Late for School, But the Pledge of Allegiance Stopped Him In His Tracks
Last week, Texas mom Heather Nelson was running late when she let her son, Royce, out of the car in the drop-off line at Santa Fe's Wollam Elementary School—but when she made her way up to the front entrance, she noticed that instead of heading inside, her son was quietly standing there.
Unbeknownst to Heather, little Royce had heard the Pledge of Allegiance come over the loud speaker, so he immediately stopped in his tracks and put his hand over his heart.
At first, Heather had no idea what Royce was doing, until police officer Cibby Moore, who was standing nearby, clued her in: "Mom he's doing good, he stopped for the Pledge of Allegiance ... and now he's praying."
"I couldn't believe that he acknowledged that that was a moment of, you know, you need to stop, do the pledge, and he just did. He just ignored all the kids around him and kept doing it. And it was awesome," Moore told FOX 26 in Houston.
Proud mama Heather posted the adorable photo of the moment on Facebook, writing:
I had dropped Royce off in the line..by the time I drove up he was doing this.. I couldn't really tell what he was doing and I was saying "Royce..go..go" as kids walked around him. Well he didn't budge and I thought what is this child doing? The officer said "mom he's doing good, he stopped for the Pledge of Allegiance ( and then she puts her hand over her heart to show me) and now he's praying". Since they do not have prayer in schools he says a little prayer silently and that's exactly what he was doing. I was so proud that he stopped when the Pledge of Allegiance came and stood his ground and did not move as the other kids were going in and then took time out and prayed and did not even care or think twice about it. This is such a beautiful picture.
It's kids like Royce that give us hope for the future! Great job, little guy.
