On Friday, Kimberly Jones shared a video on Facebook of her son Keaton delivering a tearful message to anyone else who is the victim of bullying.
For the record, Keaton asked to do this AFTER he had he me pick him up AGAIN because he was afraid to go to lunch. My kids are by no stretch perfect, & at home, he's as all boy as they come, but by all accounts he's good at school. Talk to your kids. I've even had friends of mine tell me they're kids were only nice to him to get him to mess with people. We all know how it feels to want to belong, but only a select few know how it really feels not to belong anywhere.
Keaton, who was picked up from school early by his mom because he was afraid to go to lunch, explains his own situation where kids make fun of him, and pour milk in his hair. The video has since gone viral and everyone from athletes from his home state of Tennessee to artists across the nation are showing their support for Jones.
Tennessee Volunteers Tyler Byrd says he plans to visit Jones's school with some of his teammates on Tuesday.
