Danny's Day: Anti-bullying

Danny Keefe has apraxia of speech, meaning he has a hard time getting words out clearly enough for others to understand. He also likes to wear a jacket, tie and fedora to school every day. This made him a target.

This video (which runs about 7 minutes) shows what it's like to be Danny and how his older brother's football team did something special to support him.

Highly recommended!

Note: The video runs 10 1/2 minutes and contains two versions of the same video story. The longer version runs for the first 7 minutes, followed by a "Recap" (shorter) version.
