How a video about bullying compelled a 17 year old teenager from Amherstburg to reach out with a video of his own.

Last Sunday started off as a regular day. But by the end of the night,17 year old Jordan Monforton had reached out to a boy who was being bullied by posting a video of support on You Tube. He was responding to a video posted by Jonah Mowry 4 months ago about the bullying he'd endured since grade 1. Through the use of cue cards, Jonah talked about his experience and said he was scared to start grade 8 because all but one of his
friends had moved on to high school.That video touched Jordan Monforton when he saw it 4 days ago. So he posted a video on You Tube called "My Response to Jonah". Jordan and his mom Michelle are from Amherstburg. You can see both videos by going to our website at www.cbc.ca/windsor.
