It’s normal for kids to feel nervous and a bit scared on their first day of school. Everything around them is new, like their teachers, classmates, and even school.One 10-year-old boy knows how hard it is to be a new student in school.So when he saw one of the new kids sitting alone during recess, he made a move that warmed hearts on social media.
The kid was having a hard time making new friends and the boy’s gesture helped him a lot.Instead of letting the kid feel lonely on his first day at school, the Canadian boy sat down with him.For other students, the boy’s action probably meant nothing. However, for the new kid, it was a huge thing.
In fact, he was so touched by the boy’s action that he decided to make a special note for him.

The note said:
“Sitting with me outside felt better than anything. Thank you so much. I would like to ask you if I can start joining you guys outside.”
The new student’s note even included a rainbow. The simple act of kindness probably inspired hope for him.
Ravi Kahlon, the boy’s father, saw the note.

There was also this Twitter user who applaud the kid for being so kind. She even shared her story:
“This is HUGE. My daughter was shunned and bullied for being shy and different, and sacrificed eating lunch with some of the few friends she had to befriend a new boy being horribly bullied, and would stick up for him. No one else in the 8th grade would have anything to do w/him.”
