There is no limit to the stories we hear about kids with special needs being picked on and it is heartbreaking every time. The news always seems to focus on the bad things that kids do. This story is wonderful in that it is the exact opposite of both of those things. A nice story, reported by a news outlet, that is helpful and happy about wonderful things kids have done for someone else.
These kids have taken a 5th grade special needs student under their "wings" and have surrounded, protected and promoted his social skills and feelings about himself and others. These boys are heroes and great people and should be celebrated!
