Elijah from Niederlande, Texas, is just 15, but he already knows what it means to be a good neighbor.
Walking home, Elijah took a different route and stumbled upon an older man lying on the ground, ignored by passing cars. Turns out, arthritis had caused his fall, leaving him stranded.
Elijah didn't hesitate. Unable to lift the man alone, he sprinted to nearby homes, seeking help. Together, they got the gentleman safely home.
The man believed it was the good Lord looking after him. He was grateful for Elijah and others willing to lend a hand.
Elijah's actions echo the Good Samaritan tale. In a world rushing by, his selfless act reminds us to be the neighbor someone might need someday.
