School Principal Shaved His Head To Make A Powerful Point.

At often times, people will bully others because they don't understand the situation. This is especially true in younger environments, like students in a school.

Eleven-year-old Jackson Johnson, for example, was ridiculed for shaving his head. Fellow students who passed by him would shout out loud "you look like a cancer patient." Little do they know, Johnson shaved his head to support his grandpa Rick — someone who actually did have cancer.

After hearing about all the cruel taunts that were going on, however, principal Tim Hadley decided to do something about the matter.

Students wrongfully ridiculed sixth grader Jackson Johnson for shaving his head, telling him he looked like a cancer patient.
