Today at school, there were people in my lunch who were picking on a kid who looked different than everyone else, and who sat alone. No one wanted to sit with him because he was weird and different than the other kids in the lunchroom.

Jesus was the only person who wanted to and had the guts to stick up for James and stand up to the bullies to tell them to stop. From then on Jesus and James sat together at lunch talking about sports, school and anything else that came to mind. Eventually many other kids joined the table and ate lunch with Jesus and James. People would rush into the cafeteria to get a seat next to Jesus and James. Over time, James and Jesus became best friends throughout the next three years of high school. From then on they did everything together…
