Some basketball players in Louisiana stopped a game and kneeled as a funeral procession went by. The situation took place on April 20 in the town of Denham Springs. Lynn Bienvenu was part of the procession, as she was attending the funeral of her cousin. The basketball players noticed the procession go by and knelt until it passed, Bienvenu said. Lynn Bienvenu: "They took a knee not out of disrespect, but out of honor. There was not an adult in sight 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." The picture has gone viral on social media. Bienvenu later tagged all of the boys and thanked them. Credit: Lynn Bienvenu via Storyful
