Helping A Deaf Passenger Communicate

Flying alone with a disability is certainly a frightening experience. Luckily, this deaf and blind plane passenger found help communicating his needs through a big-hearted stranger! Clara Daly, who is only 15-years-old, volunteered her skills in American Sign Language to help her fellow passenger. She formed letters of the alphabet with her fingers and the man “read” the letters with his hands. Her compassion allowed him to ask for what he needed and feel less alone on their flight!

Fulfilling A Nostalgic Dream

Mahri Smith was out with friends for the night when she ran into an older woman in the bathroom. Rather than being annoyed by their high spirits, the woman sadly admitted, “I remember when my girlfriends and I would get dressed up and go out. I miss that.” Smith responded: “Why miss it? We’re all out right now, aren’t we?” Then she and her friends and the sweet woman all took an adorable selfie together! Is there anything better than the lady’s fulfilled smile?

Supporting A Pregnant Mother

The job of a mother doesn’t include many breaks, especially when a child is scared, angry, or fussy. Coping with a kid on a plane is even more difficult, and can you imagine being pregnant on top of that? Thankfully, this mom got a chance to rest when a kind stranger offered to soothe her upset child. His reason? He was a dad and knew how difficult her role was. His friendliness redefines genuine compassion!
