  1. Small children wring your heart because they are generous to a fault, they come in all shapes and sizes and as my old Dad used to say are fine up to they go to School and then the damage is done.
    I used to watch the children playing where I used to live. All colours and creeds playing happily together. The School that my adopted niece went to had children from all backgrounds and from all parts of the world who have no concept of immigrant in their language. Nigel Farage should be made to sit with them. Between my old neighbour and I we could rustle up a mini united nations. Her Daughter is Scots, Mum is half Scots, Dad is English. Her ex husband is married to a Bangladeshi/English woman and his eldest child by this marriage resembles Mum whilst his boy resembles him. My niece is one third Scots, one third Thai and one third Chinese according to her blood line but she is a complete wee Borderer. My neighbours sister's children the eldest, her father was Moroccan and when they played together the voices are the voices of the British Isles. They could teach the adult population a thing or two.

    1. Couldn't agree more. We are not born greedy and prejudiced. We learn it from our elders and "betters".

      Or, most of us hopefully, don't.

      I hope this kid never learns the hatred that the likes of Farage spouts.

    2. Me too.

      What a magical moment, caught on camera, pure selflessness; very humbling indeed.

    3. In my experience, it's always the poor and possibly the young who are the most generous with what they have. This lad is both.

  2. Humbling is all I can add to what has already been said.
