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.
