Lynn Bienvenu of Denham Springs, Louisiana, was attending the funeral of her cousin when she passed by Franklinton Junior High School and noticed something that touched her heart.
Lynn snapped a quick photo and posted it on her Facebook page.
“While attending a family funeral the procession passed a group of young boys shooting hoops,” Lynn wrote about the photo. “Take a look closely. They took a knee not out of disrespect but honor. They was not an adult insight to tell them to stop playing. This meant a great deal to our family. May God bless each one as I feel they will achieve greatness.”
