In Spring Hill, a fourth grader at, Explorer K-8 School, stood silently during the Pledge of Allegiance on September 11. The teacher took the boys wrist and put it to his heart but the boy protested by continuing to pull it back down. He was trying to remind the teacher that he was a Jehovah's Witness. The boy had apparently never joined his peers during the Pledge of Allegiance. The teacher is currently suspended.
