Christian Moore is an eight-year-old in Wichita, Kansas. On his first day of school this year, he noticed that a fellow classmate named Connor Crites was crying. Christian walked over, took Connor’s hand, and led him into their elementary school.
He didn’t know that his new friend is autistic.
Christian’s mother took a heartwarming photo of the two, hand in hand, walking into school. Connor’s mother responded: “It doesn’t matter color. It doesn’t matter gender. It doesn’t matter disability, and it doesn’t matter anything—just be kind, open your heart . . . it’s what we need in this world.”
