WICHITA, Kan. (KWCH) — They say a picture is worth a thousand words. A photo taken by a Wichita mother details two words – compassion and friendship.

Courtney Moore captured several shots of her son on the first day of school at Minneha Elementary School. One special photo is capturing the hearts of the masses. In it, eight-year-old Christian holds hands with his classmate, Connor.

“I’m so proud of my son,” said Moore in the caption, “he seen a kid balled up into a corner crying, so he went to console him, grabbed his hand and walked him inside of the school! It is an honor to raise such a loving, compassionate child! He’s a kid with a Big heart, the first day of school started off right.” . . .
