Black Boy Grabs Hand of Crying White Classmate, Shows It ‘Doesn’t Matter What Color Kindness Is’

On the first day of school, a year two student went viral for his act of generosity toward a classmate.

When Christian Moore, eight years old, observed his classmate Connor Crites crying, he came up, took his hand, and led him into Minneha Elementary School in Wichita, Kansas, on August 14.

Christian had no idea that Connor was autistic and that his modest gesture had helped him cope with a stressful situation.

“Christian Moore’s mother, Courtney Moore, said KAKE, “I saw him on the ground with Connor while Connor was crying in the corner, and he was consoling him.”

“[Christian] takes his hand in his and leads him to the door. We waited until the bell rang, and then he escorted him into the school. The rest is legend. They are inextricably linked.”

Connor’s mother, April Crites, sat next to Courtney and expressed her concern about her son and how others might perceive him.

The message isn’t lost on their mothers as the photo continues to gather popularity on social media, with many complimenting Christian’s behavior on that first day.

“Color doesn’t matter. Gender doesn’t matter. It doesn’t matter if you’re disabled or not — just be kind and open your heart… it’s what the world needs right now “In response to Christian not treating her son any differently than the other students, April stated.

“One act of kindness has the power to change someone’s life and the planet. That’s all there is to it.”

Courtney posted on Facebook, “I’m very proud of my son.” “It is a privilege to raise such a caring, loving youngster! He’s a youngster with a big heart, and he had a great first day at school.”

Despite the attention they’re getting on social media, the boys don’t seem to grasp what’s so special about their touching contact.

Connor stated, “He was nice to me.” “I was crying on the first day of school, and he came to my rescue, and I was overjoyed… I cried happy tears when he found me and held my hand.”

The lads expressed their hope that their friendship, and the event that prompted it, will teach them something.

“Be kind,” Christian and Connor both said at the same time.
