Heart-warming to see several people take their coats off for him!
Sad to see several able to ignore him completely

Truly wonderful to see everyone help this lil boy. But i really wonder what the response had been if it was a adult homeless person...or even an animal in great distress. Something tells me it would not be such a warm response. thanks Suju

Warming video (excuse the pun) and honestly, quite clever way to create a message for their Syria cause.

I remember sitting outside as a 5-year-old trying to escape abuse, and having no one offer any help at all, so it's really great to see the world has become more compassionate in that way. Super video!

If one suffers, we all suffer. We must be our brothers' keepers, since it's obvious most of our gov'ts. don't give a damn.

Nice to see caring people. There are so many in need in today's world and I think this will get worse. We donate clothing items a few times a year.

It's good to see the kind hearts here...but I too wonder how they would treat a homeless person or someone that appeared to be mentally ill.

It helps to restore my faith in humanity to a large degree. It is wonderful to know that people will care that much about the young man. Blessings to all who care.

It was heartwarming to see that a lot of kind people helped out. Nobody knew it was a setup, I think. In my situation, being an elderly man I would have hesitated to help that young boy.
I thought for a little while, I would have given him my coat, Why? I would have felt sorry for the boy, but I would have been very worried. Plan A: stay with him, keep him warm and call 911, in my country 000. There is no plan B really, plan A would be to protect the child from the cold and predators and also myself from being called as such. My coat would have been evidence if I had left the boy and some predator would have done harm to the boy. A cruel world of injustice by lawyers. who protect the guilty. This is why we have so much crime !!!
