Every day we hear about the terrible news happening around the world so it’s great when we hear about something that warms our heart.
Today is one of those days.

Last night, while waiting to board our plane, @_carterjean_ was being her usual inquisitive self wanting to meet and say “hi” to everyone she could, until she walked up on this man. He reached out and asked if she wanted to sit with him. He pulled out his tablet and showed her how to draw with it, they watched cartoons together, and she offered him snacks. This wasn’t a short little exchange, this was 45 minutes. Watching them in that moment, I couldn’t help but think, different genders, different races, different generations, and the best of friends. This is the world I want for her.
In a country that is continuously fed that it’s so deeply divided by beliefs, I want her life to be filled with moments like this… not liberal or conservative republican or democrat, socialist or capitalist, just HUMAN.
Joseph from @samsungus in Oklahoma, if this should happen to find you. Thank you for showing my daughter what kindness and compassion looks like. Continue to shine your light in the world. #HateIsLearned #LiveWithPurpose #BeRelentless
Isn’t that just the best thing ever?
I mean, more about the fact this stranger, a man, in an airport, decided to reach out to this adorable little girl and keep her entertained for almost an hour!
Let’s forget about his race or his color and just remember that he proves that the world still has some good people in it and for that, we are forever grateful!
This stranger is known as Joseph Pat Wright.
