A netizen in the Chinese city of Guangyuan posted photos of a 3-year-old child returning home after school and opening the door for an elderly man carrying water inside the building.
The photos show the girl easily unlocking the glass door, allowing the elderly gentleman to deliver the gallons. The girl was wearing school clothes and carrying a backpack.
A tiny child spotted a man carrying two large water containers. The elderly man was oppressed by the weight of the containers, so she pulled open the glass door for him.
Many people on the internet were moved by the small girl’s gesture.
The man who provided the water containers turned out to be the girl’s father. For a 3-year-old girl, this small gesture was the kindest and most compassionate reminder that being helpful is one way to show respect for the elderly.
According to netizens who saw the pictures, kindness should be instilled in youngsters and begin while their minds are still being shaped. The most valuable teachings come from family members.
“Seeing the girl with her tiny form pushing the enormous door, I feel extremely touched,” said one of the netizens who spotted the photos. I imagine the girl’s father was also moved.”
Tiny children are shining examples of generosity that knows no bounds, regardless of their age or size. A small act of kindness can go a long way and create a lasting impact on others. They will remember random acts of kindness for a long time, possibly even a lifetime.
