By the video’s end, it can be seen that the boy with autism is still a little bit upset and tried to break away from his classmate momentarily. They ended up waving their hand in the air cheerfully which only meant that he calmed down a bit after getting his friend’s reassuring hug.
The video has since become viral after it was uploaded on Facebook. People online were totally moved by the boy’s innocent heart that was always ready to give love to anyone who needs it. Positive comments were pouring, giving praises for the kindhearted little boy and how children with autism and Down syndrome are the kindest and most gentle people they know.
“So Pure. This child reminds us that Love is instinct and Love is innate and that Hate is taught. The lack of love and empathy is the root to our problems. We need Love and Empathy in this world,” tweeted by @_SJPeace_.
“My son has autism and has been in a classroom like this for all his life. I always feel when I go to class with him that it is a room of angels. They are so kindhearted and tender. It’s the same in the school bus. The other students can’t wait to wave hello to me,” tweeted by @jfern702.
