There is a really nice story out about a young boy who left some Gatorade and water for the mailman on a sweltering hot day:

The boy, identified as 8-year-old Carmine McDaniel, left a sign, which read: “Mailman: Water and Gatorade in Cooler. Have A Good Day :)” “I just thought because it was really hot outside and I didn’t want him to maybe pass out or anything, because they are really important so people can pay their bills and stuff like that and I didn’t want him to pass out,” said McDaniel,

It is beautiful to see the instinctive merciful nature of children. This thoughtful act is as refreshing to us as that water was for the mailman.

The kid even took a short video you can watch here.
