Stranger Shows Kindness To Autistic Girl on Plane and Makes a Lasting Impression
I came across this story on HuffingtonPost.com, and it brought me to tears. It was a mixture of tears, mostly feel good tears. It's a story about a precious little girl who has autism and the stranger who accepted her as she was. People suffering with autism can seem extremely agitated and stubborn at times. Some autistic people perform the same actions over and over and over again.This could have been a very long and trying flight for the stranger sitting next to this precious girl. But instead this man, or should I say angel, accepted this beautiful little girl as she was.
The story was written by this sweets girl mother in a form of a letter. She wrote the letter to the stranger thanking him for his patience, kindness and for even keeping this sweet girl company during the flight.
Here are some excerpts from the letter according to Huffington Post.com;
She gave you some moments of peace while she played with her Anna and Elsa dolls. Kind of her to save you from playing Barbies, but I bet you wouldn't have minded a bit. I bet you have little girls, too.
Not long before we landed Kate had reached her limit. She screamed to have her seatbelt off, she screamed for me to open the plane door and she cried repeating,
She was already too far gone at this point, but the fact that you tried to help your new little friend made me emotional.
This story proves that kindness and unselfishness can touch lives for the better. You never know when your kindness can make a lasting impression on others. Nothing else matters in this world more than the way we treat each other! God bless the stranger who sat in seat 16C.
