This is for everyone who goes to school, because all of us have either seen bullying, or been bullied ourself. This is one story about how a kid named  Tae helped another student who was bineg bullied. We need more kids like Tae in our schools. Picture of Tae and Taylor below article.

Greenwood HS student gifts bullied classmate with new shoes

GREENWOOD, SC (FOX Carolina) -
High school is no walk in the park for a lot of kids, but one Upstate student took it upon himself to brighten his classmate's day after learning he'd been having a rough time.

Greenwood High School senior Tae Moore said fellow student Taylor Bates had been mistreated on campus and he wanted to do something about it.

"He's just a cool nice kid who wants to be a rapper," said Moore."I've heard he's been getting bullied around school and stuff so I wanted to do something for him."

Bothered after hearing about students teasing Bates for the way he dressed and looked, Moore seized an opportunity to help out in his own way.

Taylor Bates, who also raps and goes by the name 'Eazy T' told FOX that he had only met Moore the previous day when he presented him with a special gift at school.

"Me and Tae met yesterday at school when he asked me what size shoe I wear," said Bates.

The next day, Bates was shocked when he met back up with Tae Moore and was given a brand new pair of shoes.

"He gave me a pair of retro Jordan’s because he said that he don’t like it that people picking on me at school," said Bates.

In a video that's now gone viral, Moore posted the whole exchange with the following message on his Facebook page:

It's this kid go to our school name Eazy T he likes to rap and etc he said he wants to be a rapper just trying to chase his dream but kids at school likes to bully him and pick on him and talk about him the way he dress and look so I went and bought him some Jordan's he was shocked
Taylor Bates also posted an account of what went down, on his Instagram page with the following caption:

This guy's name is Tay, he goes to greenwood high school. Yesterday when I walked into the gym to get ready for lunch Tay asked me what size shoe I wear and I said "9, why", and he said "alright tomorrow I want you to show up at this exact spot, ok", and I said "alright man".

Today when I went into the gym there was a small crowd of students around Tay who had a footlocker bag, when he saw me come in he pulled out a Jordan shoe box and he opened it and it had retro 1 jordans, and then he handed them to me saying "here you go man these are yours", at first I didn't know what he was talking about, but then he told his friends to put my book bag somewhere, while he laced my shoes, when they were on I asked him "I don't understand why are you giving me these", when he said "I heard people have been bullying you, so I wanted to get you these to make you feel better", and when he said that I hugged him and I almost cried, and I cannot thank him enough, and then he said "and if anybody bullying you, you let me know alright", and I said "thank you so much".

"I was so happy I felt like crying," Bates told FOX.

This goes to prove that Tae and lot more kids like him do not think bullying is cool, Hopefully more people that read this may take a similar stand in the schools like Tae did.

I admire Tae for what he did for this other boy. It took courage to stand up for what is right, and it's sad we live in a society where few people will do this anymore.
