Kirk Smalley from Oklahoma shared the story of his 11-year-old.
Smalley is a construction worker and a broken hearted father as his son, Ty, took away his life in 2010. This became a real-life nightmare for him.
Kirk said that when Ty took away his life, he was still in sixth grade whereas he was a victim of continuous harassment and bullying.
He shared to KOTV that he and his wife complained to the school bullying however, they were brushed off with a mere “boys will be boys."
Kirk went to his son’s grave and made a decision in the cemetery.
Smalley made a stand and he honored his son the best way he knew: “One month and seven days after Ty died, it was actually on Father’s Day… I made my baby boy a promise,” Smalley said.
“I promised him that I was gonna stop bullying in this world,” he added.
After that day, Kirk, together with his wife started to travel. They travel 300 days a year just to talk about the risk of bullying and they use their hard-earned savings for their travel expenses.
He gives his talks completely of charge all over schools across the country.
