This a chance for football players now to get together and take some action on something. This would be an awesome first step toward regaining some respect.
This is what anyone who has a platform to stand against… bullying!!!! It knows no color, no gender, no religion, nothing. Its what is harming our youth today. The suicide rate is at an all-time high and its only getting worse.
Keaton Jones was so upset about being bullied at his Tennessee school that the young boy asked his mother to make a video about the abuse he suffered. Watch the video below!
When Kimberley Jones asked her son, Keaton, about his time in school, he recounted a heartbreaking existence at the hands of bullies, which she recorded and posted on Facebook.
“They make fun of my nose, they call me ugly, they say I have no friends,” Keaton explained. ”[They] poured milk on me and put ham down my clothes. Threw bread at me.”
Through tears, he repeatedly said, “It’s not OK,” and added, “People that are different don’t need to be criticized for it. It’s not their fault.”
The video has been viewed more than 14 million times and included in that number is Nate Bain, the social media manager for the Tennessee Titans.
He asked Twitter to help connect him with the family and added, “Mr. Lewan is against bullying and willing to provide his services as a bodyguard.”
“Mr. Lewan” refers to offensive Taylor Lewan who, according to the Titans website, is 6 feet 7 inches tall and weighs 309 pounds.
Bain was able to find the information he needed and confirmed they would receive tickets to a Titans game. Tight end Delanie Walker also offered four tickets for the game on New Year’s Eve.
This young lad needs to know he is unique… we are all unique in some way. It’s how God made us…. HE also made us a lot alike. We should celebrate our differences if we truly love ourselves and one another. Those that bully are the ones who have problems. They have inner insecurities and probably haven’t learned to love themselves. Many times it due to parents or social pressures etc. This little dude is so wise but I hate that his wisdom causes so much pain.
Now why is it allowed to happen? Where is the school? We always had teacher monitors, lunch people etc watching and observing. Where’s the bullies parents? If all else fails, reach out to the schools sports team/coach. Get team to adopt him and get players to perform the watchful oversight and make sure it stops.
Lastly, and I hope the little dude reads this, realize you have love and support of total strangers.
