Aaron has diabetes and is six years old. Over the weekend Aaron was at a birthday party and some kids said some things that were not nice about Aaron’s insulin pump (REALLY not nice, his mom stated he was really bullied by this small group of others). I’m sure Aaron must have felt a little lonely by these words but Aaron being Aaron, did not let kids who picked on him or who made fun of him get in his way.
It is no surprise that Aaron’s hero is Kyle Cochran, a fellow person with type 1 and a Ninja Warrior Competitor on TV; toughness comes in all sizes. And Aaron’s strength could match up to even Kyle’s in this instance. He handled it with grace and style and I’m sure it was words that must have hurt him, even though he may not have shown it.
My hero of the day loves ocean animals especially; and also helps out on his family farm where he has many farm animals that need tending. Anything octopus or dinosaur, Aaron will collect it. So today, in honor of Aaron, post a picture on your FB page of an octopus or a dinosaur and just write as a caption; For Aaron, a TRUE HERO. Aaron’s mom, Jerra, is on FB and she will copy and give the pictures to Aaron.
Aaron is a wonderful big brother and a young man who has a lot of responsibility helping mom take care of his little sister and he loves her very much. His day is full either tending to the farm; or picking blue berries; or even protecting his little sister; and although he is an easy-going young man who also deals with his diabetes, there is just no room in this world for other kids to say anything mean about him.
So let’s show Aaron.
So TODAY is AARON DAY; the super hero for diabetes dad today and I am asking everyone to post a picture of a dinosaur or a octupus (his favorites) with the caption; For Aaron, a TRUE Hero. Also reply here what YOU THINK of Aaron so he can read what a special young man he REALLY is.
There is no room for bullying a six-year-old and Aaron’s mom shared with me that it surely bothered her more than Aaron showed. She said they were really pretty mean about it. So let’s show Aaron how much we love him and care about him, a TRUE HERO.
