Three months ago, 14-year-old Jonah Mowry posted a video on Youtube. He just wanted to express to the world how much pain he was in over being bullied, but that he wasn’t going to let it get the best of him. Last night the stars lined up and the video went viral. I watched as tens of thousands of comments were posted, most in support, but many against him, some saying that the video was a big fake. In response he posted a follow-up video thanking everyone and addressing the video’s authenticity.
His twitter account also went crazy with tweets, many from celebrities, and Perez Hilton even invited Jonah to his birthday party.
There are other videos on his Youtube channel of him just goofing around and being a kid that would suggest he’s probably going to be a creative artist when he grows up.
I’ve offered to send Jonah Cheyenne Publishing’s entire catalog of young adult books, though he’s probably so inundated with messages that he may never see the offer.
