The National Bullying Prevention Center statistics show that 20 percent of students have been or are bully-victims. One out of every five students is a bully victim, and that makes them uncomfortable around peers while in school.
Keaton Jones from Knoxville in Tennessee is one of them. While in school, he spends the day avoiding the bullies. However, one day after school, the boy had an emotional message to share.
Keaton’s mom, Kimberly, received a call from his son. The bullies poured milk on his shirt and stuffed lunchmeat on his clothing. Keaton did not feel safe in school and asked his mom to record a video of him. In the video, he talks about how bullying hurts people leaving everyone emotional.
Kimberly posted the video on Facebook and received an overwhelming response that was unanticipated. Her tearful pleas touched many including the local sports team who promised to straighten out the bullies.

“Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year?”
