    To the boy that give the little girl the stick: Nothing but respect for you wee man. The worlds needs more people like you in it. Simple acts of kindness like what you did make this world a better place and put smiles on the faces of others and signs of hope. The little girl: From myself and the people of Scotland stay strong and keep on fighting Alex. I am happy you also made a great new friend that day. :)

    I love it when people give credit where credit's due. Too often I see people say things like "well that's what people should do, it's natural" or "why praise someone for doing the right thing, that's what they should do", etc...
    The fact is, social behaviours are set and affirmed in society by the reactions of others and what is received in return. Whether it's verbal, physical, material or otherwise, praising someone for doing the right thing should always be "a thing". Far too often the opposite is true, people do something heinous or crude or otherwise, logically, civilly unacceptable, and what happens? society lathers them with attention for it, some even praise them or make light of negative actions.
    My point? perfect reaction to something good done, especially by a young person. It just solidifies his already heart of gold, lessening the risk of him becoming jaded due to the (likely inevitable) thankless acts of kindness in the future.

    What a legend... What got me was his genuine surprise and happiness to get another hockey stick. Just proves that if you show generosity and kindness to anyone, without judgement or skepticism, you will be on the end of the same treatment in the future. Really heart warming story, what a lad.

    I've never been to Canada, but the feeling I get is that all Canadians seem to be very humble and nice.
    If I had to move from Sweden Canada would be the country I think I would enjoy the most living in.

      What are you talking about?.......Race has nothing to with this...are you dense?.......the only people who bring race up, are usually idiots, that blame discrimination on their lack of skill/talent, lack of personality, and an unending sense of entitlement......get over yourself, I've never had hatred for anyone, because I'm too busy living, and loving in my life, buy mostly because I'm not a whining, spoiled, LOSER.....guess we know WHAT you are..
