There is a lot of really terrible stuff on the internet these days. It’s a stark landscape of divisive, combative stuff sometimes. Lots of anger. Lots of sadness. Lots of confusion.
But there are some really cool shining beacons of hope, too. Some posts that can shift your thinking or lift you up to new heights.
Meet Keaton Jones. Hear his story.
This is Keaton Jones, he lives in Knoxville and he has a little something to say about bullying.pic.twitter.com/coyQxFp33V

Keaton is, like many of us, just trying to survive in a world seriously lacking in humanity and compassion. There’s a sustenance that can be hard to find in schools, if the our culture permits it. We just want to be accepted, understood.
Watching this take off and snowball into a ball of awesomeness for Keaton, who represents us in so many ways, has been so heartwarming. As a father, I see Keaton as my own son. What would I do? What could I say?
Some notable names have jumped in…
Stay strong, Keaton. Don’t let them make you turn cold. I promise it gets better. While those punks at your school are deciding what kind of people they want to be in this world, how would you and your mom like to come to the Avengers premiere in LA next year? https://t.co/s1QwCQ3toi

So I got the chance to spend the day with my new best bud Keaton. It was unbelievable to get to know him and realize that we have a lot in common. This dude is very special and has changed my life forever. Now I have the little brother I always wanted! God bless you my man pic.twitter.com/vMHVtnf2rC

Could we add to this snowball of love and spread the message for those who haven’t spoken up yet? Let’s do it.
