    To those who don't get it…I didn't either until I had kids. I have 3 perfectly healthy boys and this video made me cry and watch it over and over for the past 30 minutes. This is why I chive. The girls are nice but sometimes they get boring. These stories never do.

    Tears in my eyes. What a special little boy and a beautiful moment. You could see he was taking every piece of it in. Love how the performer laughed when he put his hand on the strings and just let him do what he wanted to do. Most passers by can simply hear and take in the music without even thinking about it, it was nice that he let the kid experience it his way. X

    What a great person(guitar player) for letting the little guy enjoy the performance that way. Its nice to see there are still some good people in the world.

    CHIVE, you guys do a great job with these inspirational post, but one thing I noticed is you label these people but saying autistic boy, and what not. I would just rather see boy with autisim or something along those lines, because when you say autistic boy or whatever it labels these people.
