When an 11-year-old boy sat at a bus stop without a jacket in Oslo, Norway, hidden cameras captured a series of very special moments.
 
The experiment was filmed by the Norwegian branch of the SOS Children's Villages International charity as part of a campaign to provide warm clothing for displaced children in Syria, according to The Nordic Page.
 
In the video, the majority of bystanders offer coats, scarves or gloves to the boy.

"People should care as much about children in Syria as they care about this boy," Synne Rønning, the information head of SOS Children's Villages Norway, told The Local. She also noted that the child was a volunteer who was never in any danger during the filming.

I am always moved by human beings ability to be so generous and loving to one another. It is also hard to witness other people's indifference to the suffering of another. Tears fill my eyes as my heart opens in gratitude when witnessing gestures of kindness and caring. My prayer is for a world in which it is no longer a surprise to witness humanity caring for each other in this way on a regular basis.

Thank you for sharing this article Belleruth. It is a wonderful reminder of how I wish to live my life every day of my being.
