Kids in La Crosse got a lesson in compassion from
a star that's traveled across the globe.
'Buckets' from the Harlem Globetrotters stopped by
the Mathy Center for an event called the A-B-C's of
Those 'A-B-C's stand for Action .
The Globetrotters are trying to eliminate bullying
in schools with the program.
'Buckets' even shared one of his experiences with
bullying with the kids.
There was a kid who tried to bully me while we were
eating breakfast by calling me names and telling jokes
I'm a happy go lucky person, a smile on my face, some
of the jokes were funny so I started laughing and
he got upset that he couldn't hurt me with his words,
so he tried to get up and walk and get in my face
and talk, so I kept smiling and walking away and smiling
and walking away.
The Globetrotters will be back in La Crosse for their
show on April 2nd.
