BBC article ~ Six year old offers a place in his family to Syrian boy

This is a touching story I read on the BBC.  The humanity, compassion and the empathy of six year old Alex from New York should be a fine example to us all.  Alex must have seen the shocking image on the television of five year old Omran Daqneesh who had a head wound, a bloodied face and was covered from head to toe in dust.  Omran had been rescued and put inside an ambulance whilst the paramedic went to attend to more casualties.  Apparently Alex wrote to President Obama saying he would like to offer Omran a place in his home and a chance to be a part of his family.  Alex's parents should be proud of him and should be congratulated.  They have obviously instilled in Alex from a young age to care about other people regardless of their nationality and religion.  As Mr Obama said, "the letter was from a child who hasn't learned to be cynical, or suspicious, or fearful of other people because of where they're from."
