Anyone who has a child with autism or has been around a child with autism knows the great challenges that come along as well.
While they are often loving and joy-filled, an autistic person can also become easily agitated, and can sometimes be difficult to calm back down again.
In the case of a young man named Bubba from Tennessee, his mother knows one way to ease his anxiety:police officers.
Deputy Loftis of the Bradley County Sheriff’s Office was called to Bubba’s home because the young man was agitated and his mom knew “Bubba loved officers.” But when the deputy arrived on the scene, no one expected him to get down in the middle of the driveway and start doing push-ups.
Scroll through below for a look at the two photos that are going absolutely viral. They show Bubba and Deputy Loftis smiling and doing push-ups together.
This deputy’s brilliant idea and display of compassion have now proven to be a beautiful inspiration to folks around the world.
