If you’re feeling like the rest of us and are a bit down in the dumps about the state of the world at the moment, here’s a small shimmer of humanity to cling to. French newspaper ‘Le Petit Journal’ captured the touching moment a father reassured his young son that peace and solidarity would win out over ‘bad guys with guns’.
Explaining to his kid that the flowers laid outside the Batlacan theatre represented the people standing together in peace.
In the midst of everything going on, it is a heartwarming reminder that most of the social, political and moral questions raised by the current crises can be answered in language even a child can understand. A real poignant example that many of societies biggest problems can become so much more complex when we forget such simple pillars like compassion, love and solidarity.
When we view the world through the same untarnished lens a child does, it can all make more sense. Find a place where no one can hear you sob and get ready for a cuteness overload. Watch the clip below:
