Band of Brothers Suit Up to Protect Bullied Kid

Danny Keefe, a 6-year-old boy at the Mitchell Elementary School in Bridgewater, Massachussetts, is disabled because of a brain hemorrhage at birth and has a speech impediment problem.

Regardless, Danny is a cheerful - and dapper - water boy for his Bridgewater Badgers peewee football team. We say "dapper" because Danny always wear a suit and tie, as well as a fedora, to school.

The football team's coach always remind the team that they're a "Band of Brothers," and that despite his disability, Danny is one of them and that they should treat him as an equal.

So, when the football team quarterback Tommy Cooney heard that Danny was getting bullied because of the way he speaks, he rallied the troop to do something: they arranged a "Danny Appreciation Day," where every boy in the team came to school dressed up like Danny.

Children can be mean, but these kids are awesome! Watch the video clip below by WCVB Channel 5 Boston that will reaffirm your faith in humanity:

Bless the children. They see things clearer than many adults, IMO. They understand how to be loving and kind if only given a chance to be so. Their parents must be so proud to see how their children are becoming such wonderful people.
