Bullying has spiraled out of control and the results are devastating.

Teenage suicide is at an all time high and the main cause is associated with being bullied at school. Children are brutal and bad parenting is causing them to take out frustrations through outward physical contact with other children. Recently a tragic story of the undeserved beating one 12 year-old endured at the hands of a ruthless bully. Henry Sembdner was walking at school when an acidental shoulder bump set of an old kid who ended up causing Henry to be put in a coma.

School hallways are supposed to be safe zones with zero tolerance for bullying, but Henry Sembdner’s story is evidence that this is not always the case. Henry, 12 years old, was walking down the school hallway at Kenyon Woods Middle School in South Elgin, Ill., when he bumped into another student.

Henry took a beating so severe from this student that his face suffered multiple fractures and his brain began bleeding. The risks associated with brain swelling were so great that he was put in a medically induced coma.

With the knowledge that Henry is a Chicago Cubs fan, his fellow classmates have shown up to school wearing Cubs gear in his honor. Henry’s story even hit a nerve with Anthony Rizzo, Cubs first baseman, who tweeted an invite to Henry to join him at Wrigley Field during batting practice and a game.

When his breathing tube was removed, one of the first phrases he uttered was: “I’m hungry!” While that may be a common phrase many mothers of 12-year-old boys hear, it was a beautiful moment for Sembdner who will never again take for granted the sound of her son’s voice.
