A few years ago, I got a message on Facebook from my sister in Vermont. My nephew had been suspended from school for fighting. He had come to the defense of a younger boy, who was being bullied under the assumption he was gay. My nephew tried to calmly stop the bullying, but then the bully got physical with him, and the younger boy, my nephew defended himself and the younger boy. Even though he only blocked punches and pushed the bully to keep him away from the younger boy, all three boys were suspended. When he was asked by the principal why he felt he needed to step in, my nephew told him, "My uncle is gay and I love him very much. Who cares who you love, anyway?" He also told the principal that he will step in each and every time he sees anyone being bullied! This kid gives me so much hope for the future generations!
