Older Boys Won’t Let First Grader Be Bullied

It’s no secret that bullying has severe effects that follow many children throughout their lives.

In Bridgewater, Mass., a first grader named Danny was getting picked on for the way he speaks and his choice to dress in a suit and tie. What many kids wouldn’t know is that his speech impediment is a result of a brain hemorrhage he suffered as an infant.

Now here’s the good part… A group of fifth graders know Danny as the water boy for their football team and protect him like their own little brother. When they found out that he was getting bullied, they came up with a creative plan to show their support and love for him.

There’s much to be learned from these wise young boys.

    Fine young men. Their parents should be proud. THEY should be proud of themselves.

  2. Anke says:

    I hope that this goes viral…THIS sort of thing is what Zero Tolerance has tried to kill in so many of our schools. You boys are true heroes to your generation and don’t ever let anyone tell you differently!! I so hope that this catches on and shames those people who have allowed bullying to flourish by trying to eliminate what is best in the human spirit…compassion, sense of justice, and the courage to do the right thing. Congratulations to the boys, their parents, and their school for showing how it should be done!

    Great young men at that school who know how to defend their friend. They will grow to be leaders and good citizens.
