Let’s Hear It for the Boy

Today my hero is my son’s friend Adam. When another boy on the playground tried to bully my son, Adam stood up and told him to stop. He has always been a lot of fun to have over and we have great memories of playing super heroes and Nerf Zombie Apocalypse. But, I am most grateful to him for the courage that he showed under peer pressure saying to the other boy “that’s not cool! Stop it!” And, I would be remiss, if I neglected to mention the parents that raised him. Because of the values that they taught him, he was able to see bullying as wrong and stop it. I want to thank them for how well they raised Adam. Let’s hear it for Adam and his parents!
