When most kids choose their back-to-school backpack, they often look for one that features their favorite color, pattern, or cartoon characters. For Grayson Bruce, that character came from the hit TV show My Little Pony. Unfortunately, not everyone was as excited about the bag as the 9-year-old boy. Last Thursday, officials at Buncombe County Schools in North Carolina told the boy that he was not allowed to wear the bag to school because it was a trigger for bullying. Though Grayson had been both verbally and physically attacked for his backpack choice, he still wanted to wear it to school and told officials this. They, however, believe the bag is a distraction and has "created a disruption in the classroom."
