"He was overwhelmed and very emotional, tears come when he is happy and when he is sad," says his mother, April Cites.
Christian, another little boy of 8 years, sees him and will help him. He grabs his hand, accompanies him to the front door, and waits for the bell to ring to go inside the school. Christian's mother, Courtney Moore, immortalizes the scene and then posts on social networks. "It is an honor to raise a child so loving and compassionate! ", she writes.
