Having a sibling is a true blessing. Brothers and sisters are always there for you when no one else is. You share with them your joy, your sadness, your accomplishments, and you turn to them when things get hard.
Ryan Suffern is an 8-year-old boy from North Carolina who has a twin sister. He loves her dearly…unconditionally. In fact, he loves her so much that he’s willing to trade some pretty cool toys for her happiness.
As it turns out, his sister Amer weights more than Ryan and the rest of the children in their class. That, unfortunately, made her a victim of bullying. Children often tease her and pick on her, and Ryan wants that to stop.
This kindhearted boy wrote to Santa and his letter touched many hearts. In it, he wrote how he wanted a remote-controlled car and a helicopter, but changed his mind because he now has a much important thing to ask for, his sister not to be picked on any more. He explains that Amer does nothing to provoke her bullies and that it’s not fair for her to be teased. That makes Ryan really mad.
When his mother read the letter, she couldn’t stop tears running down her face.
We truly hope this boy’s wish come true and that all the bullying in the world would stop because it is a very serious matter which affects many young children.
