21-year-old Godfrey Cutto found himself in a very “awkward” situation on his bus ride home. When he sat down a stranger asked him for a shake hand.
Godfrey wasn’t quite sure how to respond to the strange request at first but to make the situation less awkward he decided to shake the man’s hand. And from there, things got a lot more “awkward” for Godfrey. But the awkwardness subsided when Godfrey realized what was actually going on.
“He kept holding my hand,” Godfrey said. “I thought I was getting pranked at first, but he just needed comfort.”
The man’s name was Robert and he held on to Godfrey for the entire bus ride.
“I just allowed it, like what am I going to do? Sometimes you just have to be selfless and put someone else’s needs above yours.”
Another passenger saw what was going on and took a photo of the two and posted it on Facebook. It has since gone viral with over 14,000 shares and 69,000 likes.
A relative of Robert saw the Facebook post and personally got in contact with Godfrey to show gratitude for his kindness.
The family member told Godfrey that Robert has special needs and also suffers from Cerebral Palsy and deafness. And because the bus ride was so new to him he needed someone to comfort him.
We can all appreciate Godfrey for his kindness towards Robert. Hats off to him! Be sure to share this post with your friends and family on Facebook.
