Fifty bikers revved up to Phil Mick's home to accompany him on this daunting first day.
Bullying at any age is totally unacceptable. Thankfully there are those that stand up to it, helping to change the lives of those who’ve endured physical or mental abuse. This was recently the case for Phil Mick, who at the tender age of 11 had endured persistent bullying at elementary school.
Although Phil’s mom, Tammy Mick, had questioned her son over his mysterious bruising, it took him a while to finally reveal to his mom that he was being picked on for being “poor.” His mom shared with CNN: “They were calling him ‘fat,’ cussing at him, hitting him in private areas,” adding that her young son who’d been told he was “worthless” had “wanted to end his life.” Very distressing words for any parent to hear.
The desperate mom reached out to the school but says her concerns were swept under the carpet. Luckily for the young schoolboy from Indiana, his mom’s chance meeting with Brent Warfield, the director of the United Motorcycle Enthusiasts, would help change his life.
