A photo is going viral after a picture was taken during a high school football game in North Carolina. Although one player thought all eyes were on his injured teammate lying on the field, little did he know someone saw what he was doing and decided to snap a photo.
According to a Facebook post, the incident took place during a North East Guilford football game, where one boy, Grayson Bonomo, was injured. After his mother, Colleen Michele, took him to the hospital, she was a bit more than surprised after she got a text message.
While just about all eyes were fixed on Bonomo as he was being tended to by medical professionals, someone spotted quite the unusual instance. According to Michele, “#5 Dillon Micheal Goedeck was praying for my son,” prompting a picture to be taken.
After witnessing the amazing sight, she said, “This is something every parent should be proud of. I don’t know who took the photo but I want to say thank you. This is news worthy…..this is how our children should handle things when they have no control over the situation. Thank you again to whoever you are!!!”
The Facebook post stated, “This photo was taken at the North East Guilford football game. It was sent to me while my son was in the ER. #5 Dillon Micheal Goedeck was praying for my son #38 Grayson Bonomo who was injured during the game. This is something every parent should be proud of. I don’t know who took the photo but I want to say thank you. This is news worthy…..this is how our children should handle things when they have no control over the situation. Thank you again to whoever you are!!!”
Since being posted, it has been liked over 16k times and shared over 4k times as well. As is clear by these numbers, support for the photo has been staggering, to say the least, with many social media users saying they’d like to see more of this during school functions.
“So glad we have kids who are not ashamed of their faith,” one person wrote in the comments. “I am so proud to see these young men pray in public,” another added.
After the outpouring of support, Colleen Michele said, “I want to say thank you to everyone who has taken a minute to like or comment. I never expected this to happen. Our kids are a gift from God. The way they handle their troubles shows what kind of men they will become. I’ve had the pleasure of knowing Dillon for many years. It’s like a great big family with many arms reaching out. Grayson and Dillon have been there for each other thru many things and their friendship is a blessing. I love you guys. I call you my adopted kids just as his mom calls mine the same. Jennifer Welker Lipford should be proud of her young man. She’s done a great job raising him!”
Leftists want Christianity removed from sight, but it’s cases like these that prove how much America disagrees with their sentiment. It’s good to see someone standing up for their beliefs in the way our Founding Fathers sought to protect.
