Wouldn't it be amazing if we encouraged people like this every day in our lives. This is the kind of Twitter content I love to see!— Magpie (@OutspokenMagpie) June 19, 2021
It’s truly amazing how this small act of kindness and support from completely strange people gave this boy the confidence to try out a new thing in life. While it was a very small act, it would always provide confidence to this boy whenever he is in doubt about trying out new things in his life. If only we worked together helping and inspiring others, the world would be a far better place than it is today.
