A netizen in the Chinese city of Guangyuan recently shared images of a 3-year-old child returning home from school and opening the door for an elderly man delivering litres of water inside the building.
Photos show the tiny girl easily unlocking the building’s glass door, allowing the elderly guy to deliver the gallons. She was wearing her school clothes and carrying a backpack.
The tiny child spotted a man carrying two large water containers. She pulled open the glass door and kept it open for the elderly guy because he was oppressed by the weight of the containers.
The small girl’s gesture moved many people on the internet.
The man providing the water containers turned out to be the little girl’s father. The tiny gesture was the kindest and most compassionate reminder for a 3-year-old girl that being helpful is one kind of respect for elderly people.
Kindness should be imposed on youngsters and should begin while they are still young and their minds are being sculpted, according to netizens who saw the photographs. The most valuable teachings are those learned from a family member.
“Seeing the tiny girl’s small form but pushing the enormous door, I actually feel extremely touched,” one of the netizens who spotted the photographs said. I suppose her father, an old man, was also moved.”
The tiny child is a shining example of generosity that knows no bounds in terms of age or stature. A small act of kindness can go a long way and create a lasting effect on others. For a long time, possibly even a lifetime, they will remember random acts of kindness.
