Pennsylvania boy who was bullied takes message to Washington, D.C.

    A boy who was bullied by a group of students in Upper Darby is taking his message to Washington, D.C.

    Nadin Khoury’s story received national attention when a group of teens was caught on tape brutally beating him.

    Khoury, 14, tells NewsWorks reporter Elizabeth Fiedler he plans to go to Washington, D.C. in January to talk with lawmakers about ways to stop bullying.

    “We can reduce it by talking to some of the bullies,” Khoury said.

    While Khoury is optimistic, he admits he doesn’t think bullying will ever come to an end.

    Khoury has since switched schools since the attack.  He now attends Wyncote Academy, where he enjoys math and science.
