A little boy’s simple gesture of kindness towards his classmate is having a big impact on social media users.
8-year-old Christian Moore was headed into his first day of classes at Minneha Elementary in Wichita, Kansas when he saw another boy curled up in a ball, crying by an outside corner of the school.
Without hesitation, Christian approached the youngster and consoled him until it was time to go inside. He then took the hand of his new friend and walked him inside of the school.
Little did Christian know, the distressed youngster, 8-year-old Connor Crites, had been overwhelmed by his first day of school because he has autism.
Christian’s mother Courtney Moore was so moved by her son’s act of kindness towards his classmate, she snapped a picture of the two young students holding hands and published it to social media.
“I saw him on the ground with Connor as Connor was crying in the corner and he was consoling him. He grabs his hand and walks him to the front door. We waited until the bell rang and he walked him inside of the school. The rest is history. They have an inseparable bond,” Courtney told KAKE.
The photos have since been shared thousands of times, and as the two boys enjoy their newfound friendship, their mothers hope that it will help inspire people to be kind to others.
“One act of kindness can change someone’s life, can change the world,” Courtney said proudly. “That’s all it takes.”
