For school events often want to go our parents to see us because we care that they are there when we do that feat we have practiced many times in the year, or hear us play the instrument that we workedso hard to master. But there are times when parents, for work or other reasons, can not join us at our best and it ‘s really sad when this happens.
Addie Rodriguez, 9, is used to her father is not in ceremonies or school events. He served in the Army Air Forces US and has had to be in countries like Iraq and Afghanistan. Therefore, to Addie, in his presentation as a cheerleader was not, it was not new. He was serving his country.
However, I can not help but feel very sad when all the other girls were with their parents watching the ceremony but her. Then, a young man from a rival team for that match that would encourage, decided to give a smile to the small. He grabbed her and put her on his shoulders so he could see everything and had company.
This act of kindness was put on social networks and became viral within minutes. All were moved by the kindness of Matthew Garcia, the guy who helped her.
“I ran down the steps and just jumped the fence. I went to her, bent down, talked and asked if it was OK “

The girl ‘s mother was so grateful she decided to Instagram the act of goodwill and thank the young man for his good heart.
“Addie is no stranger to cope with his father away from home because it has been long in the army.But today I had to see the heart of my little break while the entire team of animators had their parents presenting them. It was possibly the worst feeling in the world then this great young (saw she was alone and crying) He jumped the fence and went to lift Addie on his shoulders like all other parents. I could not help but mourn watching all this as he passed. It was not even part of the school team if not the opposing team. My heart is so full knowing that this young man made sure that my daughter, a complete stranger, was not rejected. Thank you very much! His father and I appreciate your act of love, kindness and an example for the Catholic religion. ”
