A 5 Year Old Is Bullied And He Ends Up Throwing Everyday Because Of It But Then Two Football Players Stepped In To The Rescue
Stereotyping is something we end up doing without really intending to.
There goes the jock....there goes the wimpy kid..
Almost everyone ends up in one stereotype group or the other.
But what we forget, is that people can change. And no one is ever the same as someone else.
You can't define someone's character by stereotyping them. And this incident stands witness to that.
#2 The one who was bullied and the one being bullied.
Chris Kuykendall is a high school football star at Hobbs High School is New Mexico. When Chris was younger, he was a victim of bullying. The bullying left a huge hole in his heart and he often still feels some of that pain, regardless of how far he may have come since these traumatic times.
When Chris heard a five-year-old getting bullied in school, he immediately had flashbacks to his childhood. He knew the pain and sorrow he felt as a victim of bullying, and he vowed to make a difference in this young boy's life.
The five-year-old that Chris was trying to help was bullied so much that he would throw up every morning before school. He was nervous about what was going to happen, and his anxiety got the best of him.
So, what happened?
#1 Standing up
Chris says, "It just hit home. I remembered how I felt when I was getting bullied. It just fired me up. I wanted to change that right then and there. I didn't want him to go another day, wake up another day, feeling like he didn't need to go to school."
Using his social status, Chris invited the five-year-old boy to have lunch with him at school. All the bullies immediately saw the boy hanging out with an older, stronger football player, and they immediately felt intimidated and stopped their bullying. The five-year-old soon earned the respect and confidence to make it through his day with a smile on his face.
Chris's friend on the football friend, Brevin, saw the impact Chris was making, and he joined the cause. Together, the duo started Eagle Buddies, an organization that pairs athletes with children who are victims of bullying.
