5-Year-Old Boy Who Was Late for School Still Stops In His Tracks To Say The Pledge Of Allegiance…(GOD Bless and Keep this Young Man and his Family)…

Little Royce Woodrow Thompson may have been running late for school, but nothing was going to stop him from pledging his allegiance to the United States of America.

As he was about to enter Roy J Wollam Elementary School, he heard the children inside beginning to recite the pledge. Despite the possibility of getting in trouble for being tardy, he stopped dead in his tracks to put his hand over his heart to recite the pledge along with his classmates.

His mother, Heather Nelson Thompson, was confused at first about what her son was doing. But once she realized how patriotic her 5-year-old son was being, she snapped a photo to document the proud moment. The picture has now gone viral with nearly 2,500 shares on Facebook.

“I was like, ‘Royce! Go, go, you’re going to be late!’ It looked like he was looking at his shoes, and I was like, ‘That’s not like Royce. He’s not the type to have an attitude,’” Thompson, of Santa Fe, Texas, told ABC News of her initial confusion. “I didn’t hear the intercom because I had two other kids in the back, and then the officer stopped me and said lightly, ‘He’s good, he’s good. He just said the pledge of allegiance.’”
