At a time when the world feels firmly and permanently divided, two young boys showed us all what true compassion and generosity looks like after they both went for the same foul ball at a recent MLB baseball game.


The heartwarming interaction happened during a matchup between the Los Angeles Dodgers and the Philadelphia Phillies after a Dodgers player hit a foul ball into the stands.

The two young Phillies fans both raced up the steps to grab the ball at about the same time. The boy that got there first turned around with the ball in his hand and simply offered it to the boy who got there right behind him.

As the two headed back to their seats, the boy who wound up with the ball gave the other boy a hug to thank him and they went their merry ways.

Luckily for all of us, the sweet moment was caught by TV cameras.

The video quickly went viral, with people praising the two boys for their kindness and maturity.






Someone clearly raised these two kids right.



We've certainly seen adults act much worse in similar circumstances.





Once officials became aware of what transpired, both boys ended up going home with game balls.

Which just goes to show:

if you do good things, good things often come your way.

And as the baseball commentator so aptly said:

"It doesn't matter how late or what day it is–it's always nice to be nice to the nice."

There's nothing more unsettling than waking up in the middle of the night.

Particularly if what woke you up was a loud, unsettling creepy sound.

The only thing that could make the experience more nightmarish is opening your eyes and seeing something that makes you jump out of bed.

Most of the time, what ends up scaring the living daylights out of us is nothing more than a pile of laundry we forgot to put away or a cat's shadow, and find ourselves laughing about it weeks or even days later

Others however, haven't been so lucky, waking up to discover they were actually in legitimate danger.
