Bullying is an epidemic that many children and adults are facing. It is heartbreaking and needs to be stopped. One way is by showing kindness.

God made them special and He has a reason for everything. Keaton’s reason is to show the world that bullying needs to be eliminated. There is so much hate in our world today. Let’s challenge ourselves to stand up to bullies. You never know how much random act of kindness can impact a person.
