Traveling with a child is certainly one of the things most people dread the most when it comes to traveling over long distances. One young mother from Korea anticipated her baby would get fussy on their 10 hour flight from Seoul, Korea to San Francisco, USA.
So she decided to go an extra mile to ensure the other passengers would be a little more comfortable n case her child started to act up. As they were boarding, Dave, who was in the same plane noticed the young mom and her baby. What he did not expect to see was a goodie bag waiting for him on his seat when he got there.
Inside the goodie bag was a pair of ear plugs, an assortment of Korean candies and a note that would melt the coldest of hearts!
The note read, “Hello, I’m Junwoo and I’m 4 months old. Today I’m going to the U.S. with my mom and grandma to see my aunt. I’m a little bit nervous and scary because it’s my first flight in my life, which means that I may cry or make too much noise. I will try to go quietly, though I can’t make any promises. Please excuse me. So my mom prepared little goodie bags for you! It has some candies and earplugs. Please use it when it’s too noisy because of me. Enjoy your trip. Thank you. :)”
As it turned out, Dave was actually a cameraman working for KGO-TV in San Francisco. He took pictures of the goodie bag, the note, and the young mom carrying her child and shared the story online where it quickly went viral with people all over the world praising this mom’s thoughtfulness and actions.
People also wondered if the passengers were able to use the earplugs. Turns out the earplugs weren’t even needed: the baby was very peaceful and slept soundly through the entire flight!
