Personal Stories About ‘Reaching Out’

  • REACHING OUT

    Special New Friend

    About a year or two ago I was on a city bus sitting near the rear exit door. This lady with Down syndrome was preparing to get off when she suddenly looked up at me, her face lit up with a big smile and said, "Well hi there"! I mean she just blew me away with her positive outlook I greeted her with the same...

    Touching One Life

However, it was unusually quiet in the stands. Later, I was told that this young man was autistic and didn't like people...

    My Nana called me and we talked for a while. She told me she was dragging a TV to her car to put out with the trash at her house. A man saw her struggling and went all the way to the stoplight and turned around. He got out and picked up the TV by himself and put it in the trunk. He told her that his conscience...

    He has been my best friend since fourth grade and has always stuck up for me. He makes me laugh when I am in the worst mood. He makes the unpopular kids at school feel like they are really important. I wish I could strive to be more like A.J. because he has really made a difference in many people's lives,...

This is touching.

If you see someone new at the school you just walk over and say hi.
Chris Napolion, Vicksburg

This commercial really inspired me! I was in Sunday School a while ago, and the ten-year-old granddaughter of the teacher was there. She doesn't go to our church, and she was sitting at a table with the teacher and the assistant. I could tell she wanted to sit with somebody else without having to ask, so I asked her to sit beside me. Her whole face just lit up, and she thanked me again and again. It felt so good to do that, I try to do it every day at least once. Thank you!
