A successful story of choosing not to be a bystander!

I came across a beautiful story today!  The senior Quarterback of an Arizona high school football team took it upon himself to break stereotypes and protect against bullying instead of condoning it.  

A high school Sophomore, Chy Johnson, was born with a brain disorder and has been a victim of bullying much of her life. When she started to experience bullies at her new school, her mother contacted a family friend, Quarterback Carson Jones.  She was trying to get information on who was doing this to her daughter so she could make the necessary steps to put a stop to it. 

She never needed to.

Carson Jones was a lunch one day and brought Chy in to eat with him and many of his football friends.  She has been eating lunch with them ever since.  From start to finish of the school day, these boys are on constant watch to make sure she is kept safe.  They don't see much "heroism" in their simple act of kindness, but Chy hasn't been the victim of bullying since then.  

Sometimes..all it takes is a simple act of kindness....

The link to the full story and video is:

Please check out the news video.  It is beautiful to see these boys in their quest humility and honest acceptance!
