Whoever is raising this young boy is doing a damn fine job.
This clip uploaded by YouTube user Tim Richolds shows a two-year-old boy paying respects to servicemen at the Houston Airport. He walks up to each soldier and shakes their hands. In the background, you can hear what is presumably his family laughing and saying “What is he doing?”
It’s hard to say whether or not he was coached by mom or dad to do this, but it looks like it was a spontaneous action. That’s very moving, and quite remarkable for such a young boy. Watch the touching moment in the video below.
