Random Acts of Kindness: 11 year old honored

Gilbert, S.C. (WLTX)-- Justus Miller is in 5th grader at Pelion Elementary School but is being honored by a rival middle school for something he says was just the right thing to do.

"It felt really good," said Miller.

A younger student, Seth was sad at the fall festival after not being able to win a game they were playing.

"He was crying and kept on trying to win it again," Miller said.

"It was a game where you had to get a little PVC ring around a can of soda," said Seth's mother, Wendy Warczyglowa. "I had him watch the child behind me trying to show him that you don't always win and that other people don't always win too."

But Justus did win, and he immediately gave the prize to Seth. It's that random act of kindness that made Ms. Wendy nominate him for 'Making a Difference Day' at Gilbert Middle School.

"I think it shows that good deeds get paid off," Warczyglowa added. "If you're a good person and you do good things, then it comes back around and good things are going to happen to you."

Teachers say that's Just the kind of person that Justus is. Justus' friends took notice too.

"They were standing there and they saw me do it and they thought it was pretty cool," he added.

Being nice is one thing. As for TV--that's something he thinks they'll have to get used to.

"I'm nervous for this one," he smiled. " I don't know how my friends will respond to this. A little weird."

But what's not weird... is the kindness he shows to those around him.
