Michael Morones

You may well have heard the news already: a young boy named Michael Morones tried to take his own life a couple of days ago due to bullying he had to endure for being a brony. He was discovered by his family in time, but he suffered severe brain damage.

There's been an absolutely amazing outpouring of support from the brony community as a result, with a particular emphasis on helping pay his medical bills. If you want to help out, there's a big (and growing!) compilation post in broniesaremagic.

Take a look — and thank you.

This sort of thing really makes me angry, it isn't fair. I hope he makes some sort of recovery, poor little one. :(

It's too early to say for sure, but one can hope. I'm not sure a full recovery is a realistic prospect, or even a possibility, but I'm definitely hoping for the best for him.

Yes I know how it is with brain damage. Terribly sad. :'( I read some more on it, just awful.
