This is Kirk Smalley. On May 13th 2010 while he was at work he got a call from his wife. She kept screaming at him “He’s dead!” not knowing who was dead he rushed home to find his son, who had shot himself. Earlier that day their son Ty was sent home because he retaliated against a bully. The bully had been picking on him so much to it got to the point where 11 year old Ty couldn’t take it anymore. Since that day it has been Kirks mission to stop bullying. He’s been to hundreds of schools speaking out to stop bullying. He isn’t a professional speaker, he’s just a dad who made a promise to his son to stop what made him kill himself. If you would like to take the pledge to stand for the silent and stop bullying visit http://standforthesilent.org/ Reblog to help Kirk keep his promise to his son.
