Young Sons Asked Dad to Stop the Car, Jumps Out to Help Disabled Man Shoveling Snow

While the snow may beautiful and sparkling, to those who live in a cold weather locale, it isn’t all just beauty and fun. In places where there is a lot of snow, locals know just how much work that sparkling snow really is.

Shoveling snow is a task that they learn up close and personal. It can be a long, tiresome task. Not to mention that it is wet and cold outside while you’re attempting to shovel hundreds of pounds of snow out of the way with a tiny shovel.

Completing a task like this isn’t for the faint of heart and it takes a strong, able body. So just imagine being an elderly or disabled person. The task could seem daunting or impossible to say the least.

That is exactly what Daniel Medina and his two sons came across one evening while driving down the street in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. A man draped in a blanket and sitting in a wheelchair was attempting to clear his sidewalk of snow that was several inches deep.

Daniel’s sons, ages 6 and 10, saw the man too, and instead of ignoring the scene before them, they asked their dad to stop the car. Daniel immediately knew what his sons had in mind.

The boys quickly jumped out of the car, grabbed their shovels and went to work helping the man clear his driveway and sidewalk. Daniel says it was a very proud dad moment for him.

He was very happy to see his boys doing such a good deed without prompting. They were cold and tired, but they still knew the right thing to do and didn’t hesitate to jump in and lend a helping hand.

The world needs more kids like these. They show us that there is still hope for humanity. If you agree, please share this story with your family and friends.
