Ellen Degeneres hosted some very special guests on her show this week. If you want to know the true meaning of Christmas, just take a look at this.

Six year old Danny Keefe suffered a brain hemorrhage after he was born. Years of speech therapy are helping, but Danny is still struggling to be understood when he speaks. Danny always wears a jacket, tie and a Fedora to school and coupled with a speech impediment, it has made him the object of ridicule by some of his classmates. But the kids who were picking on Danny didn’t take into account Danny’s friends.

When he heard about how Danny was being treated, Tommy Cooney called on the members of the Bridgewater Badgers D5 PeeWee team to show their support with a Danny Appreciation Day. What followed will warm your heart and renew your faith in humanity. This is what heroes look like.
