Tearful Man Records Inspirational Young Boy’s Act Of Kindness
Have you ever become emotional over something you saw on the street? Riley Duncan recorded an experience that made him so emotional, he knew he needed to share. In Milledgeville, Georgia, a young boy’s act of kindness created a heart-warming viral video.
A Heart-warming Experience
Duncan was driving home when suddenly traffic stopped. An elderly woman crossed the street and started struggling up a hill. After asking his mom, a small boy jumped out of a car to race to the woman’s side. The boy placed a comforting hand on her back and they climbed. Duncan was overcome with emotion as he hit record on his phone.
The boy—Maurice Adams—patiently balanced her walker up every stair. When they reached the top, the woman told Maurice he was special and hugged him. After the brief hug, Maurice flew back down the stairs into his car. He couldn’t know he touched Duncan deeply and would create an internet buzz.
Kindness Worth $100
Later, Duncan shared the video with his community on Facebook writing, “Thank God for our youth”. The community helped Duncan connect with Maurice’s mom— Contrica Hill. The adults set up a time for Duncan to meet Maurice.
Duncan was amazed by Maurice’s kindness and rewarded him with $100! Duncan also paid it forward by allowing us to share the experience. The video has been seen by more than 1 million people.
Mom Couldn’t Be Prouder
Seeing her son on the internet is, in Hill’s words, “touching”. She says, “[It just shows] respect and raising your kids right goes a long way.”
We have all heard that children are our future. The experience with Maurice confirms our future will be in good hands.
