It is not difficult to make the world a happy place.
Just ask this young man named Ibrahim.

Ibrahim was on his way to school the other day in the Chechen capital of Grozny when he noticed a couple of stray dogs basking in the morning sun. He might have simply ignored the dogs and proceeded on his way.
Instead, he came to a stop to give them a beautiful embrace, which he freely provided, assuming no one was watching.
One person in a nearby building, however, obviously noticed Ibrahim from their window and recorded footage of the boy’s random gesture of love and kindness:
The video above quickly went viral, with strangers and friends alike applauding Ibrahim’s deeds.
“I watched the video. “That’s Ibrahim,” Katerina, a family friend of Ibrahim’s, told The Dodo, adding that the scenario reflects his unselfish character. “He walks my daughter to school and helps her carry her purse. He’s a wonderful young man.”
The dogs he embraced that day, as well as all the others he’s hugged unseen, would undoubtedly agree.
