Parents of 5-year-old Gabrielle Perez insist their daughter was stopped from praying over her school lunch last month, but Seminole County Public Schools officials say no one remembers that happening.

"The lunch teacher said, 'You're not allowed to pray,'" the girl recalled. "I said, 'It's good to pray. She said, 'It's not good.'"

The family said the incident happened the week of March 10. "She wanted to pray, but she's a rule-follower," said Kathy Perez, Gabriella's mother, during a news conference

Tuesday near the school. "I told her she did the right thing. I don't doubt for a minute that my daughter is telling the truth."

What would you do if this was your child??
