There is still hope left…

An 8-year-old’s simple gesture to help a fellow classmate is a lesson in compassion for all of us. On the first day of school, 8-year-old Conner (left), who has autism, was overwhelmed as students convened outside their school in Witchita, Kansas. “He gets overwhelmed pretty easily,” Conner’s mom, April Crites, said. “And he’s very emotional.” That’s when a fellow student, second-grader Christian (right), came over to hold Conner’s hand. “He grabs his hand and walks him to the front door,” Christian’s mom, Courtney Moore, told CNN affiliate KAKE. “He waited until the bell rang and he walked him inside of the school.” The mothers said the two boys now have an inseparable bond. “It doesn’t matter color, it doesn’t matter gender, it doesn’t matter disability, and it doesn’t matter anything, just be kind, open your heart… It’s what we need in this world,” April Crites said.
