Local Boy Speaks Out About Anti-Bullying


14-year old Damian Braun says the pain from constant bullying at school can be just too much to bear.

"This stuff should end right here, right now. I'm sick of it," He says.

His grandmother, Kathy Morris, says he has been bullied for the past 3-years in school. Tormented and teased physically and emotionally.

"He's been pushed, he's been shoved, he's been poked with pencils and pens. He's had spit wads thrown own him. He's been called names. The worst incident happened last year," she said.

That incident has taken a toll on his mental health. He's been diagnosed with a mild form of Autism and these days he barely speaks-until now. Morris brought her grandson to an anti-bullying seminar in hopes that he and others being bullied will gain some courage. As well as to learn what they can do to remove themselves from bullying situations.

"These kids need our help. They need somebody to protect these kids. So we're hoping this event would help these kids and maybe try to get this bullying stopped," she said.

Although it is hard for the 14-year old he says he tries to stay hopeful not only for himself...

"I'm very hopeful for the people being bullied. Mostly because they deserve much more."

But for others going through the same thing as him.
