Feel Good Friday: We’ve Got His Back

You know, it’s really becoming hard to hate teenagers these days. Sure, they are sucky little hyper-emotional pains in the ass, but they also do some pretty good stuff.

This week’s Feel Good story comes from Reidsville Senior High School in North Carolina, where freshman Caleb Wrenn was having a bit of difficult time fitting in, as he shared with his older sister Leah (who of course tweeted about it):

As a result of Leah’s tweet, lots of people stepped up to help out Caleb, but none more than some of the school’s student athletes. Demontez Canada, a senior at Reidsville Senior HS and member of the football and basketball teams, said “We decided to catch him off guard at lunch and have lunch with him and show him around the school and make sure he was okay and give him new friends. I felt like I had to make a stand and make sure he was okay because he is a freshman and he shouldn’t have to go through this his first year of high school.” Canada continued, “The message that I want to send is that you should always be humble, no matter what the situation is, no matter what everybody is going through, you should make sure they’re okay.”

Ugh, see why I can’t hate teenagers anymore?! [Via SunnySkyz]
