Joy Break: Out of Respect
The actions of several young men touched a grieving woman's heart.
When we turn on our television or smart phones we are bombarded with news that brings us down. Where are all the good stories? Those stories are still there. Here’s one that we hope will bless you.
Lynn Bickham Bienvenu was riding in a procession for a relative’s funeral when some young men caught her eye. As the cars went by, boys who had been playing basketball dropped to their knees out of respect. Bienvenu quickly snapped a photo. She posted it on Facebook.
“While attending a family funeral the procession passed a group of young boys shooting hoops,” Bienvenu wrote. “Take a look closely. They took a knee not out of disrespect but honor. [There] was not an adult insight (sic) 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.”
