Bullying is an avoidable epidemic that often results in a fatal outcome.
Numerous children and teens experience brutal bullying on a daily basis and more often than not the victim decides suicide will give them the relief they are looking for. This was the case for one young boy who expressed to his mother that he was contemplating suicide in order to escape the bullying. In attempt to help her son Tammy Mick Called upon a local Motorcycle shop and the results were everything and more to her and her son.
A group of more than 50 bikers in northeastern Indiana stepped in to help when they found out a local sixth grade student was having trouble with bullying.
Tammy Mick is the mother of Dekalb Middle School Student Phil Mick. She was very concerned about her son’s issues with bullying. She says it was so bad he told her he contemplated suicide. She spoke with Brent Warfield of KDZ Motorcycle Sales & Service about it, and Warfield immediately stepped in to help.
