A young boy is being praised for the kindness that he showed an elderly stranger when she was having trouble navigating a set of stairs with her walker.
8-year-old Maurice Adams Jr. from Milledgeville, Georgia was driving home from a high school graduation with his mom and sister when he saw an older woman slowly making her way across the busy street. At the end of the crosswalk, there was a set of stairs which the woman would have to climb with walker in hand.
Maurice was saddened by the fact that the woman was alone – so he asked his mother if he could get out of the car to help the senior.
His mother, of course, said yes.
Maurice then hopped out of the car, went up to the woman, and helped her up the steps. When they reached the top, the woman hugged Maurice and gave him a simple message: “You’re special.”
Little did Maurice know, a man named Riley Duncan was watching the exchange from a nearby car. Touched by the boy’s kindness, he whipped out his phone and took a video. He then sent the footage to WSB-TV, where viewers hailed the boy’s good deed.
Maurice’s proud mother, Contricia Hill, told the news outlet: “It’s touching. It’s very touching. [It just shows how] respect and raising your kids right goes a long way.”
