Jonah Mowry has received A LOT of attention ever since he uploaded his powerful video on his experience with bullying.
Most of it has been positive. People without the need to further bully have seen the strong, young man he is. Of course, there has been some negative attention as well.
Some have actually had the audacity to question the reality behind the video and others are even saying bullying is "just something to get over."
Well now Jonah's mother is speaking out on all of it, and we want to listen:
First and foremost, I am proud of the responses we've gotten from people. I'm thankful. There are a lot of people that are giving their warm wishes and uplifting Jonah, and I think that's good.
I'm disappointed that people would question whether it's true. He is sick over all the horrible posts and so are we. It's very overwhelming. I'm disappointed that somebody could look at the first video and then look at the second and think it's a lie. He's a child. He's a 14-year-old boy. He's very young.
Yes, it's extremely disappointing how some could actually find this as a tool for their own negative behavior. But the important thing here is that Jonah is doing well, and he is much happier than he was when he made the first video!
As for the skeptics, they're clearly battling their own demons, and we only wish they can see what love is.
Keep being brave, Jonah!!! You have influenced and inspired more than you'll ever know!
