Making the world a happy place is easy and doesn’t need much.
Just ask Ibrahim, a youngster.
The other day, Ibrahim was heading off to school in the city of Grozny, Chechnya, when he spotted a pair of stray dogs warming themselves in the morning sun. He could have easily just continued on his way, paying the dogs no mind.
But instead, he stopped to offer them a sweet embrace — which he gave freely, believing no one was watching.
However, one resident in a nearby building evidently noticed Ibrahim from their window and captured video of the boy’s random act of love and kindness:
Ibrahim’s deeds won acclaim from both strangers and friends in the viral video you just saw.
“I watched the movie. That’s Ibrahim,” Katerina, a family friend of Ibrahim’s, told The Dodo, adding that the picture nicely captures his kind nature. He accompanies my kid to school and helps her carry her luggage. He’s a wonderful child.
The dogs he embraced on that particular day, as well as all the others he has hugged secretly, would undoubtedly concur.
