A young boy, who couldn't be more than 10 or 11, noticed that a classmate was being mocked because of the condition of his shoes. So the next day this happened: he showed up in class with a new pair of LeBrons, and gave them to the bullied kid.
I don't have a lot to say about this beyond what you're already feeling. But I will leave you with this. It's an excerpt of a Sports Illustrated interview with a coaching mentor of mine, Bud Presley, who coached basketball at Menlo College in Atherton. The late coach Presley was considered by many to be the best defensive coach in the nation, and had a remarkable insight on the players he coached:
"Youngsters are naive, they are variable, they are sometimes obstinate and incomprehensible, but they are also warm, flexible, loyal and incurably optimistic. They lift us up when we are down, they deify us when we and all our peers know that we have feet of clay, and they constantly reaffirm our faith in the innate goodness of man."
