Touching Moment from Conference Goes Viral, Inspires Thousands

As the camera spanned the choir during the Saturday afternoon session of October 2015 conference, you might have spotted two young boys in the choir holding hands. It was a beautiful image of love and support, but the story behind this moment is even more touching.

According to a post shared by Kristi Medina, the smaller boy requires the support of a walker to get to his classes in school. But he was able to stand straight and tall and sing proudly in general conference this weekend because of the support and helping hand of his brother. These young boys stand as living testimonies and a tender reminder of what it means to nurture, support, and sustain our fellows Saints in the gospel. They also show us how giving even the smallest pieces of ourselves--our voices or our hands--can change another's world.

Since being posted, this image has quickly drawn the attention of many around the Church and now has over 1,000 comments and 7,000 shares.

These boys touch my heart as I watched them sing today. I thought of the many times I've seen them in the school hall.... Posted by Kristy Medina on Saturday, October 3, 2015
