Every mother should see this video!

Bystanders were using their phones to film a street brawl between two teens. It happened  a few days ago at the corner of McKinley and North Indiana avenues in Atlantic City, New Jersey. Suddenly a man appeared and stopped the fight. He said everyone filming the fight was a coward. He talked the teens into shaking hands. The entire event was captured on a 4-minute video posted on Facebook. Within 48 hours, it had been viewed 26 million times, for all the right reasons. It even garnered appreciative posts from NBA star LeBron James and rapper Snoop Dog.

The peacemaker was Ibn Ali Miller, 26, of Atlantic City. He's a husband, a student and a father of five. He was on break from an afternoon class when he saw the fight. A few days later, the City Council honored him for his courage and love of kids. His former kindergarten teacher, Merle Hurst-Kyle, 65, said his deed did not surprise her. "He was like that when he was five" she remembered. "He was a peacemaker." While speaking at the City Council meeting where he was honored, Miller shed some tears. To hear his VERY heartfelt comments, especially if you're a mother, get a tissue and visit www.youtube.com/watch?v=ei6sT_KP-T0
