Thoughtful Thursday: Appreciation Day

Would you like an appreciation day dedicated to someone special in your life? The football team at Williams School in Bridgewater, Massachusetts decided to do just that by devoting a day to one of their beloved classmates. In an effort to stop their water boy Danny Keefe from being bullied, the fifth grade football team created a day called Danny Appreciation Day.

Six-year-old Danny has overcome many hardships during his lifetime. Danny struggles with a speech condition that was caused due to a brain hemorrhage at birth. Yet, he does not let his speech impediment bother him; he is a bright and cheery young man that is adored by his peers. By choice, Danny wears a suit and tie to school every day. The football team thought it would be a good idea on Danny Appreciation Day to also wear a suit and tie and stand by his side to show that Danny is just like everyone else.

This Thoughtful Thursday, we honor Danny and the Badgers football team for taking a stand against bullying and promoting acceptance for children of all abilities.
