As Blake Ockleston and Daniel Coyle-Smith were making their way back home after a game of football, an elderly man nearby was struggling to cross the street.
The 13-year-olds were caught up playing Pokemon Go on their phones when the man caught their attention. Still, without hesitating, they asked if he needed any help. They weren’t doing it in hopes of getting attention, but because a woman named Lyguesshah Brooks shared the moment online, these sweet boys are getting praised by strangers all across the world for their kindness.
“We didn’t expect anyone to post it up on Facebook,” both Blake and Daniel said. “We were just doing what we hope others would do too if they were in our shoes.”
What a mature response to all of the praise they’re getting! Not only are these young boys setting a great example for helping others, but they’re also giving us all a great lesson in humility!
