Boys Jump Out Of Dad's Truck To Do Something Shocking
Cailyn Finkel 12/16/2016
Shoveling snow is a long, tiresome task. It takes strength (both physical and mental), thick winter wear and an able body. That being said, it's impossible to imagine what shoveling mounds of snow would be like for those who are disabled....
But that's exactly what Daniel Medina and his boys came across one cold winter evening - and Daniel's little ones' reaction was something that shocked him to his core.
On the car ride home one chilly winter night in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, the Medinas drove past a man in a wheelchair, struggling to shovel the snow that blanketed his property. Without hesitation, Daniel's sons, who are 10 and 6 years old, piped up and asked him to stop the car.
Daniel shared what happened next on the Love What Matters Facebook page.
"Proud Dad moment:
We're driving down South 60th Street near Morgan, and my two sons.... asked me to pull over because they just saw a guy in a wheelchair trying to shovel his corner lot and they wanted to help."
Just as they asked, Daniel stopped his car and his boys jumped out. Right then and there, the Medinas helped the disabled man shovel his driveway and sidewalk. This type of thoughtful action by his young boys made Daniel beam with pride.
Daniel was thrilled see that his little ones had a such strong moral compass, one that steered them in the right direction. Helping those in need isn't something that always comes naturally to others - but for these boys, it's second nature!
He couldn't have been more proud of them!
Even though the boys were cold and tired, they still had the drive within them to do the right thing! It's young people like Daniel's sons who show us there is hope in the world when it comes to helping those who really need it.
