The little girl was flying alone. They operate on her, but can’t yet locate any family. When the mother of a deceased victim hears this, she convinces her husband to stay as a show of support. Others follow her lead. No one is going anywhere until this little girl has someone who loves her by her side. It’s a chill-inducing gesture—one that’ll give you a pretty big lump in your throat, too.
The little girl’s mother finally arrives. She can’t believe all the strangers who stayed for no other reason than to pull for her daughter. The fellow mom who initiated this goodwill gesture doesn’t have the heart to reveal that her own son died in the crash. When the little girl’s mom is finally allowed to see her daughter, those who waited slowly, silently disperse. This has been a glowing example of the best people can be in the most trying of times.
