It doesn’t take much to make the world a happier place.
Just ask this young man named Ibrahim.
Ibrahim was on his way to school in Grozny, Chechnya, the other day when he noticed a couple of stray dogs basking in the morning sun. He might have easily ignored the dogs and proceeded on his way.
Instead, he came to a halt to give them a beautiful embrace, which he freely provided, assuming no one was watching.
One person in an adjacent building, however, obviously observed Ibrahim from their window and recorded video of the boy’s random act of love and kindness:
The video above quickly went viral, with strangers and friends alike applauding Ibrahim’s acts.
“I watched the video. “That’s Ibrahim,” Katerina, a family friend of Ibrahim’s, told The Dodo, adding that the scene exemplifies his selfless character. “He walks my daughter to school and helps her carry her bag. He’s a wonderful young man.”
The dogs he hugged that day, as well as all the others he’s hugged unseen, would undoubtedly agree.
