THANKS to all, engine started after turning the crank by the crank pulley bolt clockwise. I'm still confused at to the engine seized. I'm not sure if their is any relation but everything started by my son connection the positive cable terminal of the car to the battery making contact to the to car metal with the wrench. THANKS again to everyone for the suggestions.
Engine seizure isn't an off and on occurrence with the exception of very unusual circumstances. SOMETIMES an engine overheat or hydro-lock situation can momentarily cause engine locking.

I'm saying this as I think that you have an intermittent electrical problem, particularly in light of this recent shorting of the battery terminal. I suspect that the engine started by chance, in other words.
Close inspection of the battery, connections to include starter and ground leads are in order IMO. The starter proper could also be the culprit.
When it DID start, was there any foreign engine noise or exhaust smoke? Are the oil and coolant levels proper and lack any sort of discoloring?
