It’s often difficult for high school students to see the world from another’s point of view. Many high school students, sadly, become bullies or simply fail to help those being bullied. So it was amazing to see two young men step up to help a freshman who was being bullied for wearing the same outfit to school every day.

Micheal Todd, a freshman at Martin Luther King College Prep in Memphis, Tennessee, was bullied relentlessly by his peers for wearing the same outfit every day. He tried to explain to them that he was outgrowing his clothes so often that his wardrobe was limited.
Todd stated his mother didn’t have the funds to keep buying new clothes that fit her son all the time. When Kristopher Graham, who initially was one of Todd’s tormentors, learned the facts, he decided to put an end to the bullying and to help Todd out.
In fact, Graham along with fellow football player Antwain Garrett, branded together to help put an end to the bullying by giving Todd some of their own clothes, including a pair of new shoes the two bought together.
“When I saw people laugh and bully him, I felt like I needed to do something. I got some brand-new shoes I can give him and a few items,” Graham said.
When Todd was approached by Graham, he surely thought more insults and ridicule we’re coming his way.
“He wasn’t smiling or anything, and I was like, ‘I think this is going to make you smile, we’re in the same third period, and I apologize for laughing at you, and I want to give you something to make it up,'” Graham added.
A fellow student filmed the moment Todd received his clothes and shoes, which has since gone viral. Todd told USA Today this was the “the best day of my entire life.”
Todd told Graham and Garrett: “You guys are the best guys of my entire life.”
