Bullying is a prevalent issue in today's school society.
Unfortunately, there are few students left willing to stand up to these bullies. Everyone is afraid they will be the next target, or they just don't care about standing up for others.
But for one student at Greenwood High School, he saw someone getting bullied and knew he had to do something about it.
Tay noticed that a fellow student was constantly bullied about the way he dressed, acted, and looked. Instead of being a by-stander, Tay decided to be perform a random act of kindness for the student. He went out and used his own money to buy the student a pair of Air Jordan's, which run around $250 a pair.
The bullied student, only identified as bateta93, posted about the act of kindness on his Instagram account.
Some of Tay's friends captured the special moment on camera.
This is such a great reminder that it's unfair to label the entire younger generation as a rude or ungrateful. There are still good people out there who are willing to do what it takes to help those who need it most.
