‘This Is The World I Want For Her’: Father Shares Stranger’s Act of Kindness To Little Girl – Video


Kevin Armentrout posted on his social media account that a man named Joseph, Oklahoma showed his little girl what “kindness and compassion” are all about. Kevin and his daughter, Carter Jean were waiting at the airport for their flight in Las Vegas, and his daughter was being her “usual inquisitive self”. She said that she is going to say “hi” to other travelers.

She walked up to a passenger Joseph Wright, who shared his tablet with the little girl while waiting for the flight from Las Vegas to San Diego.

He posted, “Last night, while waiting to board our plane, (Carter Jean) was being her usual inquisitive self-wanting to meet and say “hi” to everyone she could, until she walked up on this man.” He said, “The man reached out and asked if she wanted to sit with him. He pulled out his tablet and showed her how to draw with it, they watched cartoons together, and she offered him snacks.” For about 45 minutes they bonded, Wright played Charlie Brown cartoon for Carter Jean and in exchange, she offered him her cheese puffs.

He said, “Looking at them I could help but think, different genders, different races, different generations, and the best of friends. This is the world I want for her.” Kevin posted “In a country that is continuously fed that it’s so deeply divided by beliefs, I want her life to be filled with moments like this… not liberal or conservative republican or democrat, socialist or capitalist, just HUMAN.” Later Kevin went on to thank Joseph Wright for playing with her daughter, who has a habit of talking and walking up to strangers.

He said, “Joseph…if this should happen to find you, thank you for showing my daughter what kindness and compassion look like. Continue to shine your light in the world,” Kevin said that he wants to post this story, because he wants Joseph Wright to know that his gesture was huge and he is now trying to expose his daughter to different cultures, races and generations, so she could receive them with kind-hearted warmth.

To the post of Kevin, one of the commenters said, “I first met (Joseph) in school in 1976…this is exactly how he was then and throughout our years in school…beautiful human being then and now.” Another person comments, “He’s been that way as long as I’ve known him.” Third-person wrote, “…truly a wonderful guy, this doesn’t surprise me one bit,”
