He Felt Awkward When A Stranger Clasped His Hand, But When He Realized Why, He Didn’t Let Go.

One Ontario man's tiny act of kindness is making a huge impact on social media. 

Godfrey Cuotto, a 21-year-old student in Hamilton, Ont., was photographed holding hands with a man named Robert with special needs on a local bus earlier this week and has now gone viral.

Cuotto says he was coming home from a burrito joint downtown when he entered a packed bus, and a man sitting near the front wanted to shake his hand. A little taken aback at first, the McMaster student says he then shook Robert's hand. 

"He kept holding my hand," he said. "I thought I was getting pranked at first, but he just needed comfort."
Over the 30-minute bus ride, Cuotto says the man held his hand, leaned on him, hugged him and also kissed his hands throughout the ride. 

"I just allowed it, like what am I going to do?" Cuotto says. "Sometimes you just have to be selfless and put someone else's needs above yours." 

Robert's family member later contacted Cuotto on Facebook and thanked him for comforting their uncle. They also told him Robert suffered from cerebral palsy and was deaf.

Godfrey stayed on the bus with his new friend Robert until the last stop. His gesture is kind and selfless… and we can all learn from it. Share this today and challenge yourself to never pass up the chance to help someone in need. The smallest gesture can change a life.
