Bullies Throw Boys Shoes in the Toilet at School - Little Did He Know, a Student Would Then Show Up at His House

After being continually bullied in school, one young boy got support from an unexpected source after a traumatic incident.

Bullying is a sad reality faced daily by many children in school. Usually they feel ashamed of their circumstances and do not know how to reach out and ask for help.

Luckily, there are some in school who do the right thing and stand up for victims, like in the case of Skyler Carter, who went above and beyond to help his classmate

Shoes in the Toilet

Tanner Hendrix was being bullied at school. One day, it got so bad that the bullies took Tanner’s shoes and threw them into the toilet.

Tanner’s parents took the issue to the school, and they disciplined the children responsible for the incident. However, Tanner was still hurt. The week after the attack, a senior from his school, Skyler Carter, showed up to the Hendrix house with a kind surprise.

Brand New Pair

Skyler had heard about what happened to Tanner, and he decided to use his own money to buy a pair of replacement shoes for his classmate. Tanner’s mother, Meghan, was blown away by the act of kindness. 

Last week at school Tanner had someone take his shoes and put them in the toilet. This absolutely broke my mama heart…

“I am forever grateful to this boy for being there for Tanner and for reminding us all what it means to just be a good person. #imnotcryingyourecrying #okimcrying #blessedandgrateful #spreadpositivevibes,” she wrote on Facebook.

A Wonderful Example

The story of Skyler’s kindness towards Tanner went viral on social media, and for good reason.

In a sea of depressing news stories, it gives us hope to hear about such kind and selfless actions. Acts of kindness, no matter how small, can have a big impact on us all. So, thank you Skyler!

Friendships are often fleeting. People come into our lives for a season and then they're gone. (Or they become one of our 2571 Facebook friends relegated to hearing about our lives via reels and posts).

But every once in a while, if we're really lucky, someone comes along who stays. Someone who grows with us and laughs with us and shares our deepest secrets. Someone who is there, through all of it — the good, the bad, and the times when we can't lift our broken-hearted bodies off the floor.
