An eight-year-old boy touched social media after being portrayed while consoling an autistic classmate during their first school day in Kansas.

Christian Moore was broken when he held his classmate – eight-year-old Connor Crites – during their first day of second class at Minneha Elementary School in Wichita on August 14.

Connor had a tough day and explained to local journalists that his classmate held out his hand in a friendly gesture.

& # 39; He was kind to me, & # 39; said the second class KAKE. & # 39; I started crying and then he helped me. And I was happy. … He found me and held my hand and I got happy tears. & # 39;

Courtney Moore, the mother of the Good Samaritan, saw the entire exchange go and said that the two from the heartwarming moment an & # 39; inseparable bond & # 39; had created.

& # 39; I saw him on the floor with Connor while Connor was crying in the corner and comforting him, & # 39; she said.

& # 39; He grabs his hand and walks to the front door. We waited until the bell rang and he walked into the school. The rest is history. They have an inseparable bond. & # 39;

On Facebook, Moore shared that it was & # 39; an honor to raise such a loving, compassionate child! & # 39;

She later shared comments from Connor's family, including his mother and grandmother.

April Crites, the boy's mother, shared a thank you message before she added: & I worry every day that he will be bullied because he is different and your son has just warmed my heart completely. If there were more children like him, I wouldn't worry about that. & # 39;

& # 39; Thank you so much madam for raising such a & # 39; n great child, & # 39; declared second-class grandmother, Daisy Harjo. & # 39; More parents need to teach their children to be compassionate. & # 39;

Critics would later share with KAKE that she often fears for her son and his time at school.

& # 39; Every day, I fear that someone will laugh at him because he is not speaking correctly, or because he is not sitting still or because he is jumping up and down and clapping his hands, & # 39; said Crite.

She continued later: & # 39; It doesn't matter color, it doesn't matter gender, it doesn't matter disability, and it doesn't matter, be kind, open your heart … it's what we need in this world & # 39;
