Boy born to mother left brain dead in vicious attack writes anti-bullying book in her honor

An 11-year-old Georgia boy born months after his mother was declared brain dead from a vicious attack has written an anti-bullying comic book in her honor.

Emmanuel Hawkins, who was born 12 weeks early and weighed just 2 pounds, wrote “Bully Me? No Way!” with the help of his grandmother, reported.

Emmanuel’s mother, Tara, was just three months pregnant when she was attacked in 2003 by a 17-year-old who wanted $10. Her mother, Nonnie Hawkins, made the decision to keep her daughter on life support so she could give birth to Emmanuel while in a coma four months later.

Nonnie said her grandson was often confused as to why he didn’t have a mother and would ask, “I don’t have a mom because of a bully?” reported.

So she decided to help him write the book which focuses on problems and solutions to bullying. It will be free to children, and it is set to become a public service announcement about the harmful effects of bullying.

Emmanuel is the book’s superhero.
