Heartwarming story (it is air travel related)

From the Amsterdam forum. I already knew that there are many wonderful people are out there in the TA community, and this really shows what can be accomplished in a sad situation.

Difficult to read at times but I'm never surprised by the kindness of total strangers.

Such a sad and heartbreaking story, but wonderful that all those people have offered to help this family realise their little boys dreams. Truly heartwarming and heartbreaking at the same time. God bless little Lukas and his family.

That's a wonderful story, especially how Jumeirah23 (Max) and his friends pulled together a day at Schipol within 48 hours, while he was half way around the world. Kudos to everyone who helped, and my best wishes to the little boy and his family.

As the Aunt of a child who just recently had her Make a Wish Trip, I had tears in my eyes reading these posts. God Bless this family and all of those who did so much for them in such challenging circumstances.. It will help them so much to "make memories" while they can.

Ultimately there is, in very many of us, a kneejerk response of 'what can I do to help?' when one hears a sad story like this.

In the face of less desirable characteristics and outcomes in the world around us, what a treat it is to read about the kindness of strangers on the Amsterdam forum. Well done all.
