Maurice Adams Jr. is an 8-year-old boy who lives in Milledgeville, Georgia, and he is the BEST thing you will see all week.
Maurice was riding in the car with his mom, when they saw an elderly woman with a walker crossing the road alone.
Suddenly, Maurice turned to his mom and asked her if he could get out and help the woman.
Riley Duncan was in the car behind them, and says he saw Maurice get out of the car, stop traffic, and help the woman finish crossing the street and up some stairs, and he thought the random act of kindness deserved to be shared. So he pulled out his cell phone and started recording and got it to the attention of the local news.
On the video, you can see Maurice gently holding the woman's arm or placing a hand on her back as he helps her with her walker and up the stairs slowly. When they get to the top, the woman says something to Maurice, gives him a hug and both go on their way.
Maurice's mother told WSB-TV that she had no idea that anyone had recorded her son, that he simply saw the woman and asked if he could help her. But she did say the fact that someone shared her son's act of kindness makes her an extremely proud mom, saying:
"It's touching. It's very touching. It just shows respect and raising your kids right goes a long way."
She said they still don't know the woman's name, but Maurice told her what the woman said when they got to the top of the stairs:
"She told him that he's special"
Yes, Maurice, you ARE special....now can someone please get us some tissues!
