This is a heartwarming story out of Boston. A first grader name Danny Keefe suffered a brain hemorrhage shortly after he was born. That resulted in some speech issues, but despite his speech problems he has a sense of style.

His classmates might be too young to recognize it though, but Keefe likes to dress in a suit and tie when he helps the fifth grade boy’s football team by playing the role of water boy. The football team he supports found out that Keefe was getting bullied and decided to send a message in a positive way.

There was no response of bullying, no attempt to intimidate his bullies into knocking it off, just a sign of unity. The fifth grade boy’s football team dressed up in suits and ties of their own.

“We heard Danny that was getting picked on, so we thought we would all have a day to all dress up like Danny,” a tearful fifth grader said.  “To show Danny that we love him, that we love him very much.”
