I remember the tension that was in the family from the time he left on a trip till he got home because of all of that, I can only imagine what these families are going through now....It's just too sad for words.

It’s nice to see all around the world doing this.
The mix up was awful i cant even imagine that. Holy crap.
Good idea on the puck. I should check my storage, I probably have one or two pucks somewhere. It's so difficult to read the articles. My heart aches for the parents families and friends. Our own local junior's are in the playoff's going into game 4 tomorrow night. Young men all across Canada, just doing what they love and trying to win their season.

In a video on Twitter mimicking the written form in which Cassidy previously shared her story on Facebook, the Yankees rallied around her. They praised her for her courage to stand up against her bullies and share her story, saying: “We may be older than you, we may be taller than you, but we want you to know that we look up to you.”
Hey Cassidy - we saw the video you made and from all of us here at the New York Yankees, we want you to know that you are not alone. We have your back! https://t.co/uuRb0ghzf1 pic.twitter.com/V2EeuJ1YmW— New York Yankees (@Yankees) April 18, 2018
In a video on Facebook posted by Jenn Slater, she writes that Cassidy is her daughter and originally shared her story on her own page – which she says was shut down because she’s not 13 and doesn’t meet the site’s age requirement.
In the video, Cassidy flips through pages sharing her story. She wrote:
My name is Cassidy. I am 10 years old[.] I go to John Adams Elementary School. I am in 4th grade. I started getting bullied in 1st grade. One day during Recess A group of kids grabbed my purse off of a teacher, and spit on it.. and me.. The group of kids always come up to me during Recess, trying to fight me. They hit me, kicked me, pulled my hair, pushed me, stepped on me, spit on me… Kids don’t even want to go near me. Whenever I sit at a lunch table, the kids get up. They threaten to kill me, and they tell me to kill myself. They also spilt milk all over my jacket. They also call me names[.] There’s 4 of them and only 1 of me. The principal doesn’t do anything. I feel so alone, I feel like I have no one. It hurts. This is my story… Stop Bullying! Not just for me for other kids too. Please share my story!
You could be the juiciest, most ripe peach, but there is still going to be someone who doesn't like peaches.

My mate has two tickets for the England vs Sweden game on Saturday. He didn't realise that it's going to be on the same day as his wedding, so he can't go. If you're interested and want to go instead of him, it's at St. Andrew's Church in Cambridge and her name is Sarah— Billy (@Billy_WHUFC) July 5, 2018
It's been pretty exciting! Good luck @Sprite and Croatia!
I love watching this every year. You can see the talent of many young players who some will later will be in the NHL. There are three players from our local OHL!
