Kindergartner Stops Outside School to Pray, Say Pledge of Allegiance

SANTA FE, Texas – Five-year-old Texas kindergartner Royce Nelson has his priorities in order: God, country, school.

Heather Nelson told ABC 7 she rushed her son to kindergarten last week, but when he reached the front door of Roy J. Wollam Elementary School he stopped in his tracks as other kids rushed inside.

Nelson called out: “Royce, go, go!” But he simply stood there silently, head bowed.

That’s when the school resource officer monitoring students’ arrival stepped over to explain the situation to Nelson.

“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,” Nelson posted to Facebook Thursday, along with a picture of her son standing outside of the front entrance.

“Since they do not have prayer in schools he says a little prayer silently and that’s exactly what he was doing,” she wrote. “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.

“I said a prayer,” Royce told the news site. “Thank you God, thank you for giving me a wonderful day.”

It was only a matter of time before thoughtcrimes would be a government staple. George Orwell saw all of this coming.

We should all send this child a dollar and start a trust. He would make a great President one day.
