Stranger Replaces Stolen Bike for Teen with Autism

Kindness is an often understated virtue which nevertheless has a far greater impact than what can be perceived.   Tyriq Gordon is a fourteen year old boy with autism who lives in Vancouver Canada.  He loved to ride his bike...until it was stolen from him.  His mother appealed to the community, requesting that Tyriq's bike be returned.  This story received international attention and prompted a certain Dennis Wong into action.  Also a resident of Vancouver, Wong purchased Tyriq a new bike and delivered it to the ecstatic family.  This act of kindness within a global community can have an undetermined positive impact in the world.  Who can say what further kindness has been prompter by this single act of good faith.
