The boy was only 5-foot-2, but he’d made up his mind to stand tall no matter how much of his pride bled out. As the brutal video played on a screen behind him, his collar stayed buttoned, his spine straight, but his bottom lip quivered.
"Next time maybe it could be somebody smaller than me," he said, loud and clear, like the Marine he wants to be someday. "Maybe next time, somebody could really get hurt."
That’s when host Elisabeth Hasselbeck said, “There are some guys here who want to tell you just how brave you are.”
Khoury seemed at once shocked, overwhelmed and redeemed. Where once his chin stuck out as best it could, it now fell open in wonder. He looked like a kid who’d forgotten it was Christmas morning. He wept without wiping his tears. Jackson sat as close to him as possible, as if to make the two one. He praised the boy for his bravery and added, “Anytime ever you need us, I got two linemen right here.”
A Philadelphia boy was brutally bullied, the video gets posted online, he goes on The View to talk about it and meets DeSean Jackson (who changed his schedule to fly in from LA for the appearance), Pretty heartwarming stuff!
