Bullying has become a widespread epidemic, and it seems like no one is safe. Sadly, people with special needs are often targeted by vicious bullies. Sean Maehrer is a young man who has Down syndrome. As Sean prepared to enter his freshman year of high school, his mother couldn’t help but worry about him. Would Sean be picked on for being different? Would he be emotionally or physically hurt? His family and friends reached out for help and support on Facebook. They expressed their concerns about Sean getting picked on on his first day of high school — and word quickly spread. On the morning of September 1, 2015, a group of unlikely heroes pulled up in front of Sean’s house and changed his life forever…
Sean was getting ready for his first day of high school in Allentown, Pennsylvania. Because he has Down syndrome, Sean’s loved ones were worried about him being bullied by his new classmates. So, they took to Facebook to find some extra support. Word spread quickly…
Local motorcycle clubs, known for their support of US troops and veterans, heard about the Facebook post. In just two days, they managed to organize a very special escort for Sean on his first day of school. On the morning of September 1, 2015, dozens of motorcyclists pulled up in front of his house.
