There is much to learn from children. They have a heart of gold and are ever willing to give more. And this story reinforces the belief that children are the greatest gift to Earth.
6-year-old Blake Rajahn from North Fayette Elementary School in Georgia has been a victim of bullying and knows how painful and disturbing it is. So, when his mother Nikki asked him what T-shirt he wanted as a back to school gift, Blake came up with something that left his mother speechless and proud. While the T-shirt could have had anything, right from a basketball theme to a football one, little Blake asked his mother to make a T-shirt that said ‘I will be your friend.’
This was a message from Blake to all the kids in school that need a friend and more support and love.
Nikki got to work immediately and came up with a bright orange shirt with the words ‘I will be your friend’ written on it in green.
She then put it up on her business page ‘Unfading Adornments,’ a business that specializes in personalization of shirts, bags, and decals.
And soon enough, the post went viral with over 9,000 shares. And Nikki is getting orders by the minute for the thoughtful printed shirt. The shirt is available for $15 on Unfading Adornments.
And the best thing about this entire episode is that little Blake is wondering why the shirt is getting so much attention. Doesn’t he have a heart of pure gold, this tiny chap?
The world needs more Blakes around to spread goodness and more love. Do you agree?
