Stories of Kindness from Around the World

Winning Actions At Euro Football

--by RoseMarie, posted Jul 16, 2016
Football fans get a lot of bad press but this story inspired me. Northern Ireland were playing Wales in France a few days ago and Tom, a 13-year-old Welsh fan got separated from his dad.

Northern Ireland fans lifted Tom up onto a bin and helped him locate his father in the crowd. The video shows the rival teams chanting and cheering as Tom locates dad. Beautiful.

Quick action from men who recognized the importance of Tom even though he supported the rival team. A young boy became more important than the Euro Football for those who were football fanatics and who were living and breathing for their team victory.

Don't you just love such a public display of solidarity and love from men especially when meeting in a rivalry situation?
