This week a Virginia high school senior who spends his snow days clearing snow and ice from neighborhood driveways and sidewalks saw something out of his mother’s car window that compelled him to tell her to stop the car.

According to CBS Richmond:

Teresa Adams and her son Tommy were driving home from the DMV when they drove past an older man who was trying to shovel snow from his driveway. The man was using a walker to get around.

“Tommy said ‘Mamma stop the car,'” Teresa Adams said. “I got scared and asked, ‘What’s wrong?'”

He said, “There’s an older man with a walker shoveling snow — I’ll help him out,” she added.

Tommy approached the man and asked him for the snow shovel.

“He looked surprised,” Teresa Adams said. “I was so proud, I started to cry.”

Given the east coast has been slammed with record numbers of snow fall this winter we hope more people take Tommy’s lead.
