As 21-year-old, Godfrey Cuotto, took a seat on the bus, something unusual happened. The person sitting next to him suddenly asked for a handshake. Feeling surprised, Godfrey obliged to his request.
However, that’s when things took an unexpected turn. The man refused to let go of the handshake. He held on to Godfrey’s hand for a prolonged period of time and then slowly leaned onto his shoulder.
While a moment like this would send many people running, Godfrey continued to hold the man’s hand. He sensed that the man was pain and simply needed some comfort. “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.”
One of the other commuters on the bus decided to take a picture of the special moment. She submitted the photo to the local “Only In Hamilton” Facebook page. From there, it went viral all across the world.
A family member, who stumbled on to the photo, wound up contacting Godfrey. She explained that he, Robert, suffers from Cerebral Palsy, deafness, and other special needs. She also explained that the bus is an unfamiliar setting to Robert and he simply needed someone ease his anxiety.
Godfrey stayed with Robert till they reached the final stop. While it was an undoubtedly beautiful moment, it was also a powerful lesson to us all. Pass on the smiles, share this story with your friends and family.
