Father Honors His Promise To Deceased 11-Year-Old Son
Holly Reyes 3/11/2016
Kirk Smalley has a powerful reason to share the story of his 11-year-old son's death with thousands of people. If anyone will listen, he is ready to share. The tragedy came to Kirk and his wife after his son was continuously bullied and harassed at school. His son Ty couldn't take it any longer, and ended his life there in their own home. One month and one week later, Kirk made his son a promise, and it happened to be on Father's day. That promise was to stop bullying around the world.
Dipping into their own personal savings, Kirk and his wife are on a mission to do exactly that, no matter what it takes. They visit schools all across the country to speak to hundreds of thousands of children, warning them all about the dangers of bullying and the severe consequences that it brings if doing so.
They lost their own precious son, and they want all children to know just how precious life is and how important it is to treat each other with love and respect. They plan on sharing these things with children for as long as possible.
