Some people don't believe that superheroes exist, but a touching gift from Paul Rudd to a Colorado boy serves as a reminder that we all have the capacity to be a hero.

A Facebook post from Cassandra Cooper went viral when she showcased her son, Brody Ridder's empty yearbook with a heartbreaking message that he had written.

Bullying Is A Problem In Colorado and Across the U.S.

Like any student, Brody was looking forward to getting his school yearbook signed by his classmates. Despite his best efforts, Brody's classmates refused to sign the 12-year-old's yearbook.

Brody was only able to acquire two of his classmate's signatures along with messages from two teachers. Brody was heartbroken and chose to write a message for himself.

Hope you make some more friends! - Brody Ridder

Cassandra chose to share the heartbreaking message online as a way to encourage other parents to talk to their children about the effects of bullying. She never expected her posts to garnish the national attention that they have since received.
