This kid's act of kindness to a little boy getting soaked by rain was just lovely

Sound man.

LAST NIGHT, A mother took to the internet to share an innocuous enough story about something her son did yesterday morning.

But it was so sound that everyone who’s seen it so far has loved it. She described the scene at her house:

“My son asked if he could walk to the bus stop a bit earlier than usual today because another little boy was standing there getting drenched.”

The little kid left his house early with an umbrella just to stop another little boy from getting soaked.

The mother – posting on Reddit as Lady_of_Shadows - said that she and her son were standing watching out for the school bus when he spotted him:

We went out onto our porch to watch and wait for the bus because it was raining so badly and then he saw this other little boy standing at the bus stop.

And over half a million people have seen the photo overnight. One commenter noted that this could be the beginning of something:

In like 15 years this is going to be on one of those threads explaining how you met your best friend.

Imagine <3

What a seriously sound gesture on a rainy day from someone so young.
