Brother-sister duo, Dontarius and Diamond Caldwell were waiting at a Cincinnati, Ohio, bus stop for their ride to school when Diamond saw an old woman struggling to push the crosswalk button. “I told Dontarius that I think she blind,” Diamond said. “You should get up and go help her, and he got up and went.”

The 15-year-old boy immediately obeyed and approached the woman, “I said, ‘Ma’am, do you need some help?’ And she said, ‘Yes.’ She gave me her hand, and I held it.”

Mike Garibay was driving around there when he saw the incident unfold right before his eyes. He saw Dontarius’ act of kindness and clicked a picture and posted it on Facebook. “Just thought, ‘Man, that is the coolest thing I’ve ever seen,’ when they stopped at that corner,” Mike said later. “I had to take a picture.”

When the kids’ mom, Sheena Ferrell, saw their photo online, she was thrilled. “A friend of mine had shared it, and I was like, ‘That looks like my son!’” Sheena said. “He’s always willing to help. He’s such a good kid. I just love him so much.”

Finally, Dontarius reacted to the whole incident and the publicity he was getting as “I really didn’t think I would be on camera,” he said. “I was just helping the elderly, giving a helping hand. The key word is helping hand. Everybody gotta get a helping hand.”

These kids have been raised wonderfully by their parents and we praise the Lord for the wisdom and kindness that Diamond and Dontarius have at this young age.

You both are wonderful examples of what we all should be doing at any given time in our lives. Thank your mother for teaching you both that wonder lesson. Good things come your way when you show others the right thing to do.
