Two elementary school students kneeled on the field during the pregame national anthem ceremony at a Seattle Mariners game.
A video posted on Twitter by a fan at the game, Louis Penna, showed the two girls kneeling – across from the military honor guard presenting two American flags — as they performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” Saturday with the student choir from Seattle’s Mount View Elementary School.

Seattle’s Highline Public Schools said in a statement to the Huffington Post: “Obviously, the school district respects the First Amendment rights of our students … [it’s an] individual act by the students.”
On “Fox & Friends First” Tuesday, former Army officer and opinion columnist Jeremy Hunt said he believes children are being taught “revisionist history” in schools.
