Bullying is one of those issues in schools that seems to never go away. Almost everyone who has been through the schooling system has been a victim or at least witnessed bullying occur first hand. For those kids with learning disabilities they have a large target on their back for bullies. It is hard for some kids to accept people who are “different” and it is oftentimes a lot easier to make fun of them and put them down instead of trying to understand them.
Meet James a fifth grade special-needs student who is bullied almost everyday at school. That is until, Jake, Gus, Jack, Tyler and Landon stepped in and decided to stop the bullying for good. They made a vow to protect James and let him join their crew. They all made a pact to become James’ friend and they even
chipped in to buy him a video game console Playstation.
James now has a new confidence and outlook on life because of what these courageous boys decided to do for him. He was once a kid who didn’t like to go out with the rest of the kids during recess, or eat lunch in the cafeteria, but now this has all changed. I am so happy that their are still good people in this world. The future is sure looking brighter now.
