A 21-year-old college student in Ontario, Canada was returning home from a burrito restaurant last week, and while he didn't realize it at the time, he proved that a random act of kindness can truly make a tremendous difference.
Godfrey Cuotto, who attends McMacter University, entered a packed local bus in the Ontario city of Hamilton and sat in the front. Robert, who was wearing a red baseball hat, sat down next to Cuotto and wanted to shake his hand. Cuotto agreed, but then something unusual happened.
Robert didn’t let go of Cuotto's hand.
Cuotto was a bit surprised when this occurred and thought he was being pranked.
Robert also leaned on Cuotto, hugged him and kissed his hand.
It turns out that Robert had cerebral palsy and was deaf. He just wanted to be comforted on the bus and Cutto was more than obliged to help a stranger.
"I just allowed it, like what am I going to do?" Cuotto said to Huffington Post. "Sometimes you just have to be selfless and put someone else's needs above yours."
