A young boy, whose mother posted a video in which he emotionally described how awful it is for a kid to be bullied, is finding out that he has plenty of friends in high places.
“For the record, Keaton asked to do this AFTER he had he me pick him up AGAIN because he was afraid to go to lunch,” his mother wrote. “My kids are by no stretch perfect, & at home, he’s as all boy as they come, but by all accounts he’s good at school. Talk to your kids. I’ve even had friends of mine tell me they’re kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people. We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere.”
The Tennessee Volunteers noticed and promised to visit.
