I gotta stop watching this stuff while I’m peeling onions.

True fact. But what got me choked up was seeing the kid in the video get choked up talking about wanting to help Danny. Wow.

Nice. What ought to happen next is that Danny’s Band of Badgers need to pull an Easy Company-at-Brecourt Manor on the next guy(s) to push him around.

Also I must be getting cynical in my old age but i wonder if a couple of the bullies worked their way into the picture in much the same way our Afghan “allies” are often pictured arm-in-arm with ISAF troopers right before killing them. Oh well no point dwelling on that.

Now THAT is how you deal with bullying.

Katie – Can you add a description for those of us who can’t see the videos due to network firewalls?

Thanks – that’s a good one.
I was wondering if it was the same story as a video clip sent to me at home about a football team with a learning disabled member, and they set up a couple plays during a game (without the coaches’ knowledge) to allow the disabled kid to score a touchdown. Similar – but no bullies involved in that one – but a great story about some of the football players learning something and changing their own attitudes – and demonstrating to everyone that he is one of them and not to be messed with.

Must have been siomething about the grass field they were playing on – messed with my “allergies” a bit….

They showed this video on the local news yesterday. The local newscasters were choking up all over the place.

F*ck yeah.

Hope. It springs eternal.

As long as children like these can be found, the world is going to be okay.

REAL Hope n Change.

I’m going to be the devils’ advocate here and ask what proof there was of bullying and how the 6 year old peers felt when 45 older boy’s from the 4th grade showed up. Also, the weeping from the older kid made me think more about his mother pushing him than anything else.

Very moving and beautiful story…

The vast majority of Americans are very good people including many of those who disagree with us politically… Sometimes we forget this fact when we are in the midst of heated political debates…
America is the greatest nation in history not only because we have the mightiest economy in history, and the mightiest military in history, and the most advanced technology in history, but also and most importantly because we are very good people…

Monster props to these young people.
