Two elementary school students took a knee while performing the national anthem at a professional baseball game on Sunday.

The choir from Seattle’s Mount View Elementary School performed “The Star-Spangled Banner” at an MLB game between the Seattle Mariners and the Cleveland Indians. A Tacoma News Tribune sports writer tweeted a photo of two young girls kneeling beside their classmates during the performance at Safeco Field.

NFL free agent Colin Kaepernick, who started the protests, retweeted the photo of the Seattle students.
