Tyrea is a teenager with a heart of gold. He always makes sure everyone around him stays safe and sound and his actions of kindness stole the hearts of many once again.
One cold and bitter day, this teen and his mom got to their van where they placed their groceries, and just when they were about to head home, Tyrea jumped off the vehicle. His mom was confused at first, but knowing his son, she knew he did it for a reason.
Moments later, she noticed him helping an elderly lady get to her car, protecting her from the poring rain with his coat.
The lady thanked him and the two said goodbye to each other before Tyrea got back to his mom’s van.
Tyrea’s mom was incredibly proud of what her son had done. Well, she has always taught him to be kind and compassionate, especially when he spots someone in trouble.
However, it turned out that Tyrea’s mom wasn’t the only one who noticed his act of kindness. A police office named Holt witnessed the whole thing so he decided to follow the teen and his mom. Eventually, he pulled their van over.
At that point, Tyrea’s mom was worried sick because she believed the officer misinterpreted her son’s kind act.
As he approached closer, Officer Holt said, “Mam, I’m shocked.”
Her heart started beating very fast because she was convinced she and her son would find themselves in trouble. But then the officer added, “I’m shocked at how selfless your boy is.”
Those words made Tyrea’s mom cry tears of joy. She knew she raised her boy right, but having someone notice that and praise him that way just melted her heart and filled it with happiness.
Officer Holt believed what this teen did was very special especially because not many teens in his place would do the same.
He then took to Facebook and wrote:
“I told his mom that she has done amazing with him and I hope and pray he goes places.”
However, he later realized that he should have done more for the boy so he wrote another post saying, “Kiddo, if you see me on the street again, this guy owes ya a dinner. You ever need anything, I will come running to ya.”
Some of the people who had seen the post and read the story helped officer Holt and Tyrea get in touch.
Soon after, they had dinner at Red Lobster and invited Tyrea’s mom too.
This lovely story proves that even the tiniest act of kindness can go a long way.
It’s because of generous people like Tyrea and Officer Holt that this world is a better place.
We are sure the praise Tyrea got will only encourage him to do more good in the future. Who knows, he may even become a cop like Holt one day.
