“Solidarity! On May 20th, in the middle school of Sichuan earthquake with magnitude 4.8, teachers and classmates didn’t forget him in wheelchair. ”, Solheim wrote.
If we closely look at the video, we see that the first student to help the differently-abled boy was seated in the front row. Instead of leaving the classroom, he chose to help his classmate. Three students can be seen clearing the desks to make the pathway for an easier evacuation while a teacher stands at the door and asks everyone to quickly leave the school premises.
The social media users were quick to react to the video and wrote that this was an indicator of the good values being taught to the children.
Another user said that this was a great example of how humanity should start at school level itself.
“Thumbs up”, wrote a user.
The fourth emphasised that these values should be inculcated in every child.
There is some difference between classmates and friends and these were friends, commented a user.
There is some difference between classmates and FRIENDS…….
They are FRIENDS….
