There Are Still Heroes:Chy’s Story
In a high school in Queen Creek, Arizona,  bullies taunted and threw garbage at a girl named Chy. Chy was different she had microcephaly, a condition that meant her brain stopped developing early, at about a third-grade level. Her life expectancy is only 25-30 years. At 15, she has lived half her life already. But the bullies didn’t care.Chy’s mother had no luck when she asked school officials for help. So she asked the quarterback of the football team, Carson Jones, if he knew anything.  All she wanted was a name or a nudge in the right direction, but the quarterback did more.
Taking ActionHe asked Chy to eat lunch with him and his friends so she wouldn’t be alone.  Another football player, Tucker Workman, walked with her to class. A third player, Colton Moore, made sure she sat near them in classes.Slowly but surely, the other kids began to notice. And then the local media noticed.  And now the national media. Chy calls the football players “my boys,” and they all look out for each other. The boys make sure no one bullies Chy. When one of the boys got into a car accident, Chy volunteered to carry his backpack at school for him.
This is a story that could have ended badly, as many bullying stories do, but because a few kids decided to do the right thing, it’s now an inspiration. Please share this story with friends and family…and especially your kids! If you’re ever doubting that there are still good people out there, this story should remove all doubt.
