in CASE you missed it…GOOD NEWS STORY OF THE DAY
When a student in his classroom was bullied for losing his hair, an elementary school teacher from Marivan, Iran, shaved his head.
But Ali Mohammadian, 45, didn’t just stop the bullying with his gesture — he inspired his class of more than 20 students to shave their heads as well, the Guardian reports.
The student, 8-year-old Mahan Rahimi, lost his hair from chemotherapy treatments, according to the Islamic Republic News Agency (IRNA).
In December, Mohammadian posted a picture of himself with Rahimi to Facebook. The picture spread online and even caught the attention of Iran’s president, Hassan Rouhani, IRNA reported.
