8-year-old Maurice Adams was riding home from a graduation on Wayne Street in Milledgeville when he noticed and elderly woman having a hard time getting around.
So, he did what any perfect gentleman would do: he got out to help her.
The eight-year-old took the woman by the arm and slowly guided her up the steps as his mother waited in the car.
“He was like, ‘Mom, can I help her go up the steps?’ I said, ‘Sure,’ so he jumped out,” said Maurice’s mother, Contricia Hill.
“I started to help her out because she was struggling up the stairs,” Maurice said.
It was all caught on film by Riley Duncan, who was driving nearby when he spotted what was happening.
Adams held the woman’s arm as she took each step. At the top, she gave him a hug.
Duncan posted the video on Facebook with the caption, “Thank God for our youth.” It quickly got thousands of reactions and shares.
It was a small gesture from a small person that has now brought a big joy to thousands.
Maurice says he hopes to continue helping people all the time.
