Prepare to have your faith in humanity restored. On Wednesday morning, Virginia teenager Tommy Adams went out of his way to help an elderly gentleman with a walker clear the snow from his driveway, and now his act of kindness is going viral.
It started when the high school senior was in the car with his mom coming back from the DMV, and he suddenly asked her to stop and turn around.
“He said, ‘Mama, mama, stop, stop. Turn back around real quick,’” Teresa Adams, the teen’s mom, told HLN.
His concern initially caught her off guard — she thought he might have spotted an oncoming car or an animal in the road. Instead, her son said, “Did you see that man right there with a walker trying to shovel snow?” Adams told HLN.
So she turned the car around, and her son jumped out to help the senior gentleman clear his driveway.
“I was worried about him falling,” Tommy Adams told HLN. “My grandma had just passed away and I was used to helping people.”
Nottoway County, Virginia, where Adams and his family lives, has received about 6 to 8 inches of snow so far this season, the teen’s mom tells HLN. It’s more than the area typically gets in the winter, but that level of kindness and courtesy is something she’s tried to instill in her children since they were very young.
“I was brought up this way,” the teenager told HLN. “My mom and my grandma were brought up this way as well,” he added.
“We’ve always tried to get out there and help people who couldn’t help themselves,” his mom said.
She snapped a photo of her son shoveling snow, which took him about 10-15 minutes, and posted it to Facebook. Multiple likes and comments later, the local news station WTVR shared Adams’ story on their Facebook page, making it go viral.
Teresa Adams is extremely proud of her son’s actions and says she doesn’t know what she’s going to do when he goes off to college. The high school senior graduates in May and hopes to attend the University of Georgia, she says.
“I want to thank my mom for being such a great parent,” Tommy Adams said.
