    A young boy (Nadin Khoury) was bullied and came on the VIEW with his parents to tell his story. Sad to see that bullying like this still exists.

    Anyways - being an Eagle fan - he was surprised by a vistit from some Eagle players including DeSean. Pretty cool (4 minutes into the video). I admit I did get a bit teary eyed. DeSean seems like a good fella....

    I agree with you man, saw this on espn. Really cool story, best part about it was that Desean Jackson appeared to be 100% sincere when he appeared on the show. Who's gonna mess with that kid now??

    Wow, seemed like a really good kid. Can't believe those guys would do that to him. Really cool of Desean and those guys to do that.

    Can't believe people get a kick out of bullying people who have a disadvantage one way or another. It's sickening. Straight up class by Desean and those two linemen. He might be a clown on the field, but I got nothing but respect for Desean now.

    Good on the Eagles and good on the kid. Very impressed by Jackson. They took something that obviously really hurt the kid and turned into a very special experience he'll remember for the rest of his life. Really cool moment. I hope that kid kicks ass in life.

    As someone who's been on the wrong end of bullying, bullying doesn't need a reason, just an excuse.

    Then people don't understand why kids get guns and shoot up schools. You got 7 on 1 and others are just watching. The teachers don't do anything about it. What do you expect a kid to do who is small and outnumbered? Lucky he did not do that...but it is easy to understand why some kids do. The teachers who ignored the problem should be fired. It is the job of the teacher to make sure the class is a safe learning place for ALL the students, not just some of them. Outrageous behavior.

    Never get tired of seeing stuff like this. It's amazing the impact that an athlete or any prominent public figure can make in a person's life with one simple appearance. Much respect to Desean and his teammates for that, and to all who use their success/wealth in such positive manners.

    I agree the teachers that ignore situations like the one this boy described should be fired on the spot.

    Yeah- it was quite a moment. The kids reaction shows how much this meant to him. Kudos to DeSean and the linemen - looked very genuine.

    How can people just walk past this kind of thing? At least someone had the presence of mind to film it.

    Wow. Just wow.

    Not a big fan of D-Jax and his gum-flapping on the field but my opinion of him just went up 10x.

    Christ, I hate humans.

    Having said that, I may not like the player, but I gained a lot of respect for the man.

    Yea i remember seeing this on the news when the story broke about this kid. The teacher should absolutely be fired. Bullying should get more attention then it does.

    Big ups to the iggles and D. Jack! Way to use your celebrity and prosperity to enrich another person's life.

    I agree with everything in this post. Very well said.

    Also, good on the Eagles organization as a whole. I worry so much about my sons getting bullied...it's nice that people are finally being made aware of how much of a problem it can cause.

    Bullying is a menace to society. It's prevalent in boys and girls. My daughter was being bullied in 4th Grade and it got really bad that she was crying in school and disturbed. They called a counselor who spoke to my daughter and the bully. Teachers are 100% responsible. Kids are with them most of the time everyday so they HAVE to be aware. If they aren't - then who will be?

    Thank god that this was captured on tape but can you imagine the other incidents like this that go on and are not recorded.

    Bullying has to be taken seriously.
