    On a side note, was the child not accompanied on-board by an adult? If there was an overwhelmed mom I would get that, but the article doesn’t mentioned that

    Mrs. Groner reached out to care for another human being with love , honor and respect. Imagining a world where we all did that even if we don’t know someone and have a part of ourselves that we can share. A beautiful story and example for all to follow.

    This shlucha saw that this boy was a person before his needs. A helping hand is what we all need sometimes. Her patience is upworthy, her commitment to people with diverse abilities is commendable. http://www.ROSIESfoundation.org and the Friendship Circle know where its at!

    Although, nothing less is expected from any shliach, theoretically, when a shliach/shlucha steps up to the bat in actuality, all Shluchim/shluchos worlwide applaud and say “we are proud that you are our representative” and now now please step on to the pedestal where you belong for klal Yisroel to Shep nachas.

    Unaccompanied?

    To the commenter who thought perhaps the child was unaccompanied, probably not. It would not surprise me however if his parent’s were totally overwhelmed and even exhausted at that point. Nor would it suprise me if Mrs. Groner told them to rest while she entertained and soothed the boy.
    She obviously connected with him and sometimes a child like him just needs some quiet ‘alone’ time.
    It’s wonderful to see good things be reported.

    story inspires a downtrodden yid

    My cousin has been depressed over a personal family issue for the past several years. As I have learned from the Rebbe, one must give to others in order to move from a place of despair. I had a strong conversation with him the night before about this topic. We spoke about volunteering at a home for special needs children on shabbosim rather than being alone and feeling sorry for himself. In the morning, he (a non Lubavitcher) sent me the link to this story. The Rebbe’s messages are for all people at all times. One never knows the enormous… Read more »

    We have an autistic son who reacts the same way to over stimulation or stressful circumstances. This kind woman offered the perfect solution by making this boy feel safe. I bet those parents deal with this several times a day and sometimes a child just doesn’t always respond to them. Thank you for being part of the solution and not judging. I am sure those parents were beyond grateful.

    That was so amazing. I have two grandchildren with autism and it can be very stressful at times for their mom now being a single parent. There are so many people who are not aware of how sensitive these kids. You are an amazing women and I know his parents are so grateful to have some one a stranger who care enough to reach out and help their child in the time of need.

    We have two autistic sons. Preparing for even a short plane ride is stressful for the whole family, let alone a marathon flight. Then to have a delay of three hours…it’s amazing he lasted an hour into the flight and I’m sure his adult companions were exhausted from helping him get there. And stressed about the reactions of other passengers – people often don’t understand that meltdowns come from a place of fear and anxiety; they assume the child is tantruming and blame the parents. Thank you for your kind understanding and your help. You gave that little boy and… Read more »
