"I do wonder who Eileen Montgomery is in another country though :-/"

I am Eileen Marie Montgomery. I am a Singer, Actress, Children's entertainer, Youtube entertainer, Voice actress and Artist from the United Kingdom. I am a cartoon lover myself which is what attracted me to watching 'My little pony; friendship is magic' and becoming a part of the Brony Community.

Michael Morones, an 11 year old boy in North Carolina, recently attempted to take his own life due to bullying received on account of being a fan of the show 'My Little Pony'. Fortunately, the attempt was caught and halted in time to save his life, but he sustained severe brain damage. The family has reached out and is asking if the community from the show he loves can help out with the medical expenses.

Here's What his Family have to say: Michael is a huge lover of all music. He started to learn Violin because of Lindsey Stirling and harmonica because of my career as a musician years ago. The more people that can share this the better. We want this beyond viral for two reasons, one to share the anti bullying message and two to share Michael's amazing faith in God and I know if Michael was awake right now he would want to give nothing but forgiveness and love to the bully's who teased him so they would know what it's like to be accepted without harsh words or violence.

Thank you <3

Nothing gets posted to your wall. Only your Facebook name & photo are used.

To the guy below me. Why are you even on here. I suggest you make your way the little x at the top of the right corner of your screen. There should ONLY be words of encouragement on Michael's page. Do you not realize that family gets on here and reads comments and also some day Michael may. Just to remind him of how special he is. Grow up and have some respect.

i dont understand how keeping someone alive as a vegetable is considered a humane thing to do. seriously this is worse than him actually dying. also every brony can go fuck themselves for getting behind this poor kid who just so happened to like weird shit like every other 11 year old kid

Hang in there buddy! Every Brony knows what it's like to be verbally and/or physically abused because of an interest. I know how you feel. I've been hurt because I'm a Brony. Just keep moving forward, and remember you're not alone. We are here to love and tolerate, and to help each other. My heart goes to you. Hang in there. Don't give up.

Hi Michel when my friend Ryan told me about you I almost cried I'm so sad what happened to you and because of you I have gotten over my fear over people knowing I'm a brony my friend keeps saying to people is it worth it I'm sorry for the way they treated you to be truthful I used to think broneis where stupid but my friend soran (like one of the wonder bolts) changed my ways an I think it would be Awesome if people would not be so mean because small things like a show. Best of luck to you man and don't forget your 20% cooler than those haters and my friend Ryan made this to tell those haters is it worth it. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v= mPB3OHV795c

I'm really proud of your recovery, like the comment below it will be a long process. But we believe in you every step of the way.

I am a little disappointed on the updates on this page but as to my understanding is that Michael is awaking and breathing on his own. He still has a very long recovery. I don't believe he is able to move any limbs yet or talk. But I personally believe with a lot of encouragement from everyone he will make it. It will be a slow progress.

Are there any updates on Michael?

posted by Christina Price 20 days ago

Hi Michael! My name is Nicki, I am 12 years old and I was reading the newspaper one day (very unlikely) and when i came upon your story... I started crying. WHY ARE PEOPLE SO MEAN!? When i feel bad, i have to do something about it. So the next day at school, I whipped on a Rainbow Dash shirt and made a sign with Sweetie Belle on it that said "In honor of Michael." People were questioning it, so I told the story over and over to get my point through. One boy didn't really care and moaned whenever i walked past him. I. Don't. Care. He can be mean if he wants, but it's getting him nowhere. Two boys (also 12 years old) came up to me and said they LOVED THAT SHOW. And they were not afraid to say it! A couple days after that, my mom told me that you had woke up from your coma. I cried again, but they were tears of JOY! I'm going to do the same thing again in a few days, to show everyone how much I care about you. I'm proud of you too! I want to make this comment 20% cooler, so i'm sending cards and pictures to you of my own drawings. Feel better! (JK, my Pinkie sense already knows you will!) I love and support you all the way. :D (|) (|) Pinkie Pie -----> / O .-. O (sort of) / |___| / / |------------|

I am so sorry for what you have had to go through, because of bullies. This breaks my heart.Praise God you were found in time. God has a purpose for you. My own son Michael is a brony and has gotten me to be a huge fan of My Little Pony. I just love Pinky Pie and Apple Jack. You are always in my prayers, sweetheart. Sending love and hugs.

I am so sorry to hear about this!!! It's so sad to think someone would be bullied because of a cute, innocent tv show like MLP, and then feel so bad that they want to take their own life. I'm glad to hear Michael is ok, though, and I hope he recovers. He seems like a great young man who has good tastes for people and shows to look up to, like Lindsey Stirling :) God bless

IS THERE AN ADDRESS WE CAN POSSIBLY SEND MICHAEL A CARD TO?

posted by Ervin Sands 1 month ago

Was wondering if there was an update on Michaels health? I lost my 10 year old son, Ethen to suicide by hanging in 2013. I also had another son (13 at time) hang himself in 2010. He survived but with a sever traumatic brain injury. He spent 3 months in hospital. I would love to be of any support I can to family. My son that survived his attempt is in wheelchair and speaks with assistive communication devices. He also has become a public speaker for suicide prevention. I know it has helped us to find families that understand. ((Hugs)) to all that loved Michael. And if possible would love update on recovery.

Michael, You are certainly not alone! My son is 13 and is a Brony! Bronies are cool and don't let anyone tell you otherwise! To Michael's family: I am an author of a children's book called 'Please Don't Pick On Me" and there is 2 pages in there designated just for Bronies. I would love to send you all a copy. Can someone email me CourtneyLynnAuthor@gmail.com And my son Austin wants to add something as well: "Michael, man. Call me anytime! We can talk about My Little Pony and what it's like to be a Brony! Those other people are just jealous about the magic of friendship! Hang in there man!"

Michael- You're not alone. I was bullied and I understand how difficult it must be. Bullying is one of the most uncool things to do. Please know that you're supported and loved. I wish you well and I keep you in my prayers. May your recovery be swift. Sincerely, an adult fan of the show MLP:FIM-
