15-Yr-Old Spots Blind Woman At Crosswalk And Rushes To Help Her.

The best good deeds are done by people with no expectation of praise or repayment.

Siblings Dontarius and Diamond Caldwell were waiting at a Cincinnati, Ohio, bus stop for their ride to school when Diamond noticed an elderly woman struggling to push the crosswalk button.

“I told Dontarius that I think she blind,” Diamond said. “You should get up and go help her, and he got up and went.”

Without hesitation, the 15-year-old followed his sister’s advice and approached the stranger. “I said, ‘Ma’am, do you need some help?’ And she said, ‘Yes.’ She gave me her hand, and I held it.”

What Dontarius didn’t realize was a stranger named Mike Garibay happened to be driving by. When he witnessed Dontarius’ act of kindness, he snapped a picture and posted it on Facebook.

“Just thought, ‘Man, that is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,’ when they stopped at that corner,” Mike said later. “I had to take a picture.”

When the kids’ mom, Sheena Ferrell, saw their photo online, she was thrilled.

“A friend of mine had shared it, and I was like, ‘That looks like my son!'” Sheena said. “He’s always willing to help. He’s such a good kid. I just love him so much.”

As for Dontarius, reaching out was no problem at all. “I really didn’t think I would be on camera,” he said. “I was just helping the elderly, giving a helping hand. The key word is helping hand. Everybody gotta get a helping hand.”

These kids were clearly raised right. Keep up the awesome work!
