Julia Price was just out for her usual run around her neighborhood when all of a sudden she heard someone throwing offensive remarks her way.
Though she tried to ignore him, hearing him call her a foul word pushed her over the edge.
So she took her headphones off and prepared to confront the man but then a little voice speaks up.
A little boy who witnessed everything started scolding the old man!
James, the brave little boy, is a good example to many men out there who still think catcalling is not offensive.
May there be many more young boys like James. We’re certain he will grow up to be a true gentleman!
See Julia’s post, which quickly went viral, below.
Here is her caption in its entirety.
I was on my usual running path when I heard an older man yelling loudly enough for me to hear through my headphones. “Sexy lady, hey hey hey sexy lady!” He kept screaming it and I decided to just ignore him and keep running.
This ignoring seemed to piss him off so he lashed out and said “eff you, dumb B****!” Now let’s keep in mind he was well-dressed and appeared to be on his lunch break from an office job.
That was my trigger point. The B word. I ripped off my headphones prepared to stand up for myself when this little boy who was walking alongside his mother and little sister in a stroller looked at the guy and said, “Hey. That is not nice to say to her and she didn’t like you yelling at her. You shouldn’t do that because she is a nice girl and I don’t let anyone say mean things to people. She’s a girl like my sister and I will protect her.”
The man was immediately embarrassed and started gathering his lunch to leave. I asked the mother if I could hug the little boy (his name is James) and I told him how grateful I was for him. He just shrugged and said “Well I just wanted to make sure your heart was okay.”
According to his mother, this is a typical day in the life of James. Thank you so much to the mothers and fathers who are raising the next generation to be brave and courageous, and to be little earth angels for all. I am so touched.
After the post was shared nearly a million times, Julia posted on facebook expressing her gratitude to young James.
