A Musician's Simple Act of Kindness

Sometimes I post things on my blog because they're interesting or cool, and I hope they'll increase traffic to the site. That's not the case today. I'm posting this video because it feels good to share something this fundamentally beautiful.

Jacob, an eight year-old blind autistic boy, "feels the music" of a sidewalk musician with an acoustic guitar. Somehow, their simple interaction becomes a moving act of human kindness and generosity.

You can view a larger version of the video by clicking the title bar at the top of the video, and you can learn more about Tyler Gregory, the guitar man, by visiting his website here.

(Hat tip to my friend Adam Sheridan for finding this video.)
